    Default Problem about prepositions following verbs

    Dear teacher.
    I don't understand why "at" is used in this sentence:"Many joggers, like Donald Robbins, feel that if they can succeed at jogging, they can succeed at other things also,...". I am taught that "in" following verb "succeed" not "at".
    Is it right?
    Thanks a lot.

    Could it be a mistake?
    I also know that "in" follows "succeed"...
