Connor Duncan competes in the 2014 Kentucky state high school track meet. He is considered one of the state’s best in his senior year.

The roots Connor Duncan wanted to grow with were roots he’d never seen or experienced.

They were roots literally about halfway around the world and roots with no obvious manifestations in the Anderson County High School track star.

Until now.

Just look at his arm. His left arm, to be exact.

Look at all of the ink on his left shoulder. On his bicep and tricep. All the way past his elbow to his forearm.

Connor Duncan, the blue-eyed, blonde-haired hurdler, is in touch with his Samoan roots.
