Ultra marathoner, Olya Lorzh: "I have always loved to run and as the opportunities to compete started to arrive, I grabbed them."
Olya is coached by Ruth Hunt in Hong Kong, who helps to prepare Olya physically and mentally for some of the toughest races in the ultra running calendar: training on the trails around Hong Kong and on the the track and tread mill. Olya also swims regularly and uses yoga, stretching and other cross training routines to keep her in the shape needed to compete at the highest level.
Olya's immediate goals are to take part in more international race events and to continue to improve her race times and performances.
Olya is currently studying Sports Coaching and Performance and is busy gaining the knowledge and experience needed to apply it in both her own training and, as a fitness trainer and running coach, to help others to develop and reach their potential in the sport too.
Olya Korzh joined the AMO athlete family in 2014.
Olya loves the AMO Ironcatcher Transformer sunglasses.
