Jared Ward is really inspiring to me, so I looked up his reviews on Rate My Professor to see if he was popular with the students. It turns out he has 4.8 out of 5 stars and had only positive reviews. It seems like he's fairly humble too, since none of the reviews mention him ever talking about his Olympic or WMM escapades.
What a cool guy. It's so impressive that he is an academic and an elite runner. He also has the Chilli Pepper of Hotness- that mustache really must bump him up to a whole new level!
