Track Beauty of the Week: Olivia Borlée
October 9, 2010Posted by on
Olivia Borlée is this week’s track beauty!
The 24-year old Belgian is a 200m specialist, with a personal best of 22.89s in the half lap. Her best time in the century dash is a respectable 11.39s. The eldest of the Borlée siblings has two major championship 4x100m relay medals to her name – a bronze in the 2007 Osaka World Championships and a silver at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
At the Barcelona European Championships, Borlée failed to go beyond the semis, finishing sixth in her heat.
Olivia and her twin brothers are trained by their father, Jacques. Off the track, Borlée is working towards a degree in fashion design, while aiming to represent Belgium at the 2012 London Games.
