The documentary series about Julien Wanders that you can not miss
He is the only Westerner who has adapted to the rhythm of life of the African athletes in the 'training camps' of Kenya. A European who runs at the rhythm of the elite and with only 23 years has no ceiling. No one can know how far the Swiss climbs. He has the Europe Record of half marathon with a stratospheric 59:13. A mark that snatched without any contemplation the hitherto 'recordman' of the distance Mo Farah, of Somali origin. We're talking about Julian Wanders.
"You have to be a little crazy to become a good runner," says Wanders. As crazy as for, at 18, leave everything, your native country, and move to Iten, to the 'monacal' life of the 'training camp'. Rest and run. Nothing else. It must be recognized, though, that the fact that Wanders' partner is Kenyan has made things easier. Julian, also, has opened a restaurant. There he coincided with Jonatan Flores, 'alma mater' of the 10k of Laredo and who chatted with us on Radio del Corredor after visiting Julian in his 'training camp' in Kenya.
Well, now the life of Julian Wanders is passed to the small screen with aa documentary series of nine chapters of about 20 minutes each where we can discover the day to day of the young athlete, how he coexists with his partner, his meal and rest routine and how he is 100% focused on running and improving. The episodes will be broadcast as the Tokyo Olympics approaches.
