PWR Lab invites elite distance runners to apply for sponsored training camp accommodations in Flagstaff, AZ in preparation for the 2020 Olympic Trials and Olympic Games
Santa Cruz, CA (February 5, 2020) – PWR Lab, an innovative running analytics company leveraging training data from wearables to help runners avoid injuries, invites 2020 Olympic hopeful distance runners to apply for free training camp accommodations in Flagstaff, AZ. From March 10th to May 7th, selected athletes from around the world will receive complimentary housing at the PWR Lab High-Performance House, physiotherapy treatment, and access to best-in-class training facilities.
“At PWR Lab, we are first and foremost about athlete health and development,” said PWR Lab Co-founder & Director of Athlete Development Dr. Jeff Moreno. “Our goal with this initiative is to support elite runners pursuing their Olympic dreams. We recognize what it takes to excel on the World and Olympic stages and have created an environment that is conducive to training and recovering at an elite level. We hope by eliminating the financial burden associated with altitude training and providing the best injury prevention resources, we can help set these athletes up for success on race day.”
The initiative has already gained positive momentum with elite athletes such as Luke Mathews, Sam McEntee, and Arsène Guillorel committing to the PWR Lab High-Performance House. PWR Lab encourages other 2020 Olympic hopeful runners to apply for a free 3-5 week stay by completing a simple online application. In addition to providing housing, PWR Lab will ensure selected athletes have access to physical therapy and strength training support.
“There is a huge emphasis on altitude training in my program,” said Australian Olympian and Under Armour middle-distance runner Luke Mathews. “Since joining Total Sports Management, I have trained at altitude every year for three to four months. My upcoming April training block in Flagstaff will be a crucial component in my quest to represent Australia at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Coordinating the logistics of a good altitude camp is always tough, but I feel very fortunate to have PWR Lab’s support.”
