You might find some on-campus student-athletes running along the Charles, waiting for their team’s designated time slot to lift in Harvard’s athletic facilities, or following Google docs with workouts prepared by their coaches. Not all first-year students were allowed back on campus this semester, however.
First-year Brock Locnikar poses in Harvard Stadium, but he hopes to take the field as a player soon. Until then, he will be taking on a different kind of contact sport: mixed martial arts.
“I’ve started training in fighting again, and I am ready to compete again,” Locnikar said. “I am planning on having five fights in this next semester.”
