HBS Exceptional Athlete Awards: Q&A with George Rudolph

Earlier this month, Delia Zanoschi and Tum Preugpaibul (RCs) announced the winners of the inaugural HBS exceptional athlete awards, an initiative they started this year to recognize the best athletes at HBS. This week, Delia and Tum interviewed HBS Class of 2016 exceptional athlete winner George Rudolph.


SECTION A, SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA When did you start? I started when I was 6 or 7 years old. I had just moved to South Korea, and there was this small, slightly crooked makeshift wooden basketball hoop in the driveway of our apartment building, nestled in between some garbage cans and the entryway. To make it even more challenging, we also lived on a hill, so the ground itself was sloped. Despite this awkward set-up, I started to get into the sport – it became an after-school ritual to shoot around until it got too dark to see. I’ve pretty much stuck with it since then. What was your magic moment? The closest thing to a “magic moment” was probably in a regional tournament I was at in Undergrad with the club team. It was a playoff game, so if we lost, we would be eliminated and would have to go back home.
