MARC ROIG: Long distance runner
Marc is a runner and specialist physiotherapist in athletics that circumstances have led him to live, work and run in Ethiopia.

He was born in Sant Pol de Mar in 1984.

"As virtually all children, I started playing football. That was ok for me. if I ended in athletics was" because of my mother and my brother, by pure imitation. The first year I competed was at 15, cadet, and I was 9th in the national championship of Cross and then on track, 2nd in 3,000 m.

Among the pleasure and euphoria with those unexpected results, the decision to quit football was more than easy, obvious. I soon received a scholarship that allowed me to settle in the residence for athletes Blume in Madrid. There, for six years, I combined my studies in physiotherapy training.

I always liked the long distance, so I was gradually lengthening distances and, fortunately, the results accompanied me at U-23 I was twice national champion in 10,000m.

He loves long-distance races such as the marathon and half-marathon, but occasionally Marc still runs some cross and track.

Marc has helped Florence Kiplagat twice to beat the World Record Half Marathon in Barcelona: 65'12 "in 2014 and 65'09" in 2015.

Marc has also guided Alessandra Aguilar (2h27'00 ") and other Spanish athletes.

"Recuperat-ion Hydrasport is my fetish drink, has always been great to me so I use it and recommend it without exception.

"Hydrasport Orange is my favorite, but lately I am quite fond of Recuperat-ion Sport Gel: Before it was not too fond of gels, but this one has convinced me."

"I intend to continue giving the maximum in my career (of course, if I have the luxury of training with Bekele and a dream place for any marathoner, Rift Valley) and continue to improve my marks. For this I continue to count on Hydrasportof course."
