Nahom is quite possibly the best distance runner in Georgia Tech history. He became the first Tech student-athlete since 1994 to be named an all-American in cross country.

Solomon ran the fastest time in 23 years by a Yellow Jacket in the 2017 NCAA Championships and finished his career by leading every race he’d competed in over his final two years. He holds the record in every long-distance race the Yellow Jackets compete in. Nahom is earning his master's degree from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering with the goal of becoming a robotics engineer.
