Crossing the Finish Line – Carlo Deason competes at worldOutgames 2013

Carlo Deason, veteran academic advisor for the College of Technology and UH alum, competed in Europe at the 2013 worldOutgames in Antwerp, Belgium, July 31 – August 11. He participated in the Track and Field 800 m and 1500 m competitions, garnering bronze medals in both events. “The competition was much more challenging than in the past. Antwerp was a great host city where I was able to reconnect with runners whom I have not seen in a couple of years,” said Deason. Even off the track Deason receives accolades. In 2009 he received the George Magner Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Academic advising along with a $1,000 and a plaque.

Between training and advising, Deason also serves as a mentor for members of the UH track and field team. He is looking forward to heading to Europe for future competitions. Visit www.woga2013.org to learn more about the worldOutgames in Antwerp.
