Olivia Baker is on the show today! Olivia runs with the Atlanta Track Club and is sponsored by Adidas. She is an 800m runner and last year in 2022 she made her first World Championships. She has a PR of 1:58 in the 800m.
Some big news just broke about the Atlanta Track Club about coaches Amy and Andrew moving on. So the club is looking for a new coach and Olivia talks a lot about this transition period in this episode and what her coaches mean to her.
In this episode, we talk about how she was accepted to medical school but decided to defer to chase her professional running dreams.
