Matt Baranoski Gets Back on Track

Lehigh Valley Live published a story on Matt Baranoski, the Penn State student who will compete at the Olympics this summer (and who graces the cover of our July/August issue). An electrical engineering major who is on track to graduate in December, Baranoski is one of the premier cyclists in America.

Baranoski hit a serious bump in the road in 2012 that delayed his ascent to the top of American cycling. As he explains alongside his orthopedic surgeon, Baranoski had the opportunity to compete in nationals, but two weeks prior to the event, he broke his collarbone in a crash and needed surgery that required inserting a plate and eight screws.

Baranoski bounced back from that injury in a big way, and now, he has his eyes set on a gold medal in the keirin at Rio 2016. If you’d like to watch Baranoski compete, all of the men’s keirin races will take place on Tuesday, August 16. You can find the day’s schedule right here.
