Jacob Alplund, 23, Oahu
Came to the U.S. in 2011 from Sweden on a tennis scholarship. I began running my junior year in college and after some unexpected success when trying out for the XC team i converted to running. I am currently pursuing an MBA in Finance at HPU and completed my last year of eligibility with the team last fall. I love sports (tennis, running, downhill skiing), hiking, and traveling (been to almost 30 countries).
