Pac-10 Q&A: Sarah Ohr, Stanford Diving

March 20, 2009

My goals for this season are...
My goals for this season are to make the most of my final year competing for the Cardinal. I hope to post personal bests, defend my Pac-10 title on 1-meter, and qualify to compete at the NCAA championships again.

On my iPod is...
On my iPod is a little of this and a little of that. I am a huge fan of singer songwriters such as Jason Mraz, Steven Kellogg, Jack Johnson, and Jon McLaughlin. I go up to San Francisco for small concerts as often as I can in and effort to hear unknown, up and coming artists ... But when it comes time to compete, nothing can compare to a little hip-hop.

I would love to trade places for a day with...
I would love to trade places for a day with my sister. I am following in her footsteps to becoming a doctor, and I would love a little glimpse into what is like to actually perform orthopedic surgery!

My favorite teams to watch as a kid were...
My favorite teams to watch as a kid were the Denver Broncos, Atlanta Braves, and the UGA Bulldogs.

My favorite athlete to watch is...
Well, my favorite athlete to watch was John Elway, back in the day.

The talent I'd most like to have is...
The talent I'd most like to have is the ability to sing. I can't carry a tune for the life of me!

My favorite memory as a Cardinal is...
My favorite memory as a Cardinal is definitely a tie between doing my last dive to win the Pac-10 1-meter title and competing at NCAAs. I will never forget standing on the platform, the event for which I achieved All-American Honorable Mention, wearing a suit with the Stanford 'S' on it, and realizing how proud I was to call myself a Cardinal.

The attribute I most like about myself is...
The attribute I most like about myself is my ability to see the best in people and in situations thrown my way.

My plans after college are...
My plans for after college are to apply to medical school. Ideally, I will soon be pursuing a career as an Orthopedic Surgeon, Radiologist, or Pediatrician.

The best thing about Stanford is...
The best thing about Stanford is undoubtedly the tradition of excellence in both athletics and academics. That was the biggest factor that made me choose Stanford, and I have no doubt it will hold onto this legacy for a very long time. I can think of nowhere else where you can eat dinner sitting next to a peer that has an Olympic Gold Medal on your right and one that may very well win a Nobel Prize on your left.

My funniest teammate is...
My funniest teammate is Mary Beth because you never know when you are going to walk in on her while she is singing and dancing in the locker room.

The sport I'm the worst at is...
The sport I am the worst at is basketball. Cut me some slack, I'm only 5' 2'.

Something about me that others would be surprised to hear is...
Something about me that others would be surprised to hear is that I would love to write a book one day.

Which of your teammates would you like to trade places with for a day and why?
The teammate that I would like to trade places for a day with is Mary Beth, because I would give anything to be a freshman at Stanford for a second time around. I want to experience it all over again.

The best advice I've received was....
The best advice I've received is the golden rule, 'treat others the way you would like to be treated' from my parents.

What I miss most about Georgia is...
What I miss most about Georgia is the friends I grew up with. I moved to Georgia when I was 1 year old and my family has now moved to Park City, Utah. Oh, and of course I miss good old southern hospitality.
