Boom Nutrition is proud to support the Olympic dream of Venezuelan marathoner Luis Orta. From Caracas Venezuela, Luis is a former Kentucky Wildcat and currently lives and trains in Boulder CO. At Kentucky, Luis was a 4 time All SEC athlete, 2012 SEC Indoor Runner of the Year and UK 3000m Steeplechase recordholder. After qualifying for the 2016 Rio Olympics at the 2016 Rotterdam Marathon, Luis said “I wouldn't have been able to achieve my lifetime goal of becoming an Olympian without CarbBoom! Energy Gels. I had tried different kinds before but the strong taste or the amount of sugar and caffeine gave me even more trouble than 26.2 miles already should give you”. Luis is a fan of Banana Peach and is excited to be carrying the Boom! banner in Rio this summer.
Good luck to Luis and look for Luis sporting the Boom! tattoos while training and competing this summer.
