Yvonne Treviño Hayek joins the Runified Podcast to talk about her 20-year long journey to the Olympics. Yvonne shares how she was born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico, where she was introduced to running and long jump at the age of 8. Her childhood coach saw something special in Yvonne and told her that she had the potential to be great, maybe even the best. Yvonne shares the story of developing as an athlete, including some significant personal and physical setbacks on her quest to qualify for the Olympics. Yvonne currently lives and trains in Houston, TX, holds the women’s Mexican long jump record, and will represent Mexico at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio.
