Long Island Hopes For Olympics

New Zealand runner Leanora Petrina, 29, who lives in Bayport, Long Island, is profiled in local publication Long Island Business News. “I run anything from 1500-5km on the track, including the steeplechase, Petrina says. “On the road, I’ve run anything up to a 7 mile race so far. My goal is to represent my country at the Olympics. I’m working part time so that I can focus more on my running” Reporter Brendan Barrett asks: “What are some of your favorite things about Long Island?” “Being close to water anywhere on the Island reminds me of New Zealand,” she says. “The summers, and the places and people that I run with are both favourites.”
