Marco Olmo, sixty years Ultra-Trail World Champion, is training for what could be his last race. Winning is his only goal. Running is his reason for living. This is his history. COMING OUT ON AUGUST '09! www.unpassodopolaltro.it email@example.com "In life I'm a loser, I was born poor, as I am poor still now. I run to revenge myself, I run for vengeance." Marco Olmo, 2008 Synopsis Marco Olmo is the one of the best ultra-trail runner in the world. He has won two Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc (2006 and 2007), six Cro-Magnons, four Lybia Desert Marathon, three Marathon des Sables and many other races. He runs for more than 160 km non-stop, twenty race hours in the desert of Morocco or up to Monte Bianco, at 2500 m. high. Marco is from Robilante, a little municipality in the Piedmont Alps, in Vermenagna Valley, not far from Cuneo. Born into a peasant family, when he was twenty he left the country to work in the town’s cement plant . His fate and life have been marked by this choice: still nowadays,notwistanding his sport successes, he defines himself as a “loser”. Marco started to race and win when he wasn't young any longer, and now he doesn't want to stop running. Victory gives a sense to his present and past life, but maybe the end is near. During the last season Marco has faced new injuries he never had before and has passed through many abandons. Is this the end of his career? Will he be able to find other reasons to live and to fight for? And his wife Renata, will she be able to return to an ordinary life? Winners or losers,in a near future they will have to face the reality, without races or victories.
