Runner Bernard Lagat Makes U.S. History


Bernard Lagat uses many of Melaleuca’s products including the Peak Performance Pack. Bernard just became the oldest long-distance runner in history to qualify for U.S. Olympic Team. At 41 years old, his record-breaking performances show no sign of slowing down. In April, Bernard lowered his own World Masters Record for the road 5,000 meters. Then in May, Bernard blazed past competitors in the 10,000 meters to win the Patyon Jordan Invitational, setting a new World Masters Record in the process. His blistering pace continues in July, as he finished first in his heat at the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials and went into the finals with the fifth-fastest qualifying time.

“After Melaleuca Convention 2015, I decided to start taking the Peak Performance Pack,” Bernard says. “I’m getting older, and I wanted to get that energy back. Plus, it’s really important for me to keep my nutrition balanced. I need that in my job to train well, be strong, and stay injury-free.”
