A trio of Peruvian marathon ladies at the Olympics


Gladys Tejeda

 Her mother who she says is sacred to her, encourages her to achieve more and more every day. Publimetro reports Gladys saying that “being champion would be an honor” because it would make her mother, who will be there watching from the stands, even happier.

Judith Toribio

Ahora reports that Monday she climbs hills and lifts weights. Tuesdays she spends six hours training on the track. Wednesdays she runs 25 to 30 km races. Thursdays and Fridays she runs on the athletics track and Saturdays and Sundays she does cross country tests, for two to two and a half hours. Let’s hope all this hard work pays off for Judith.
