In July, 2012, Dr. Tim Maggs and former world class Kenyan runner Paul Mbugua started Team CPOYA.com for the the sole purpose of raising the awareness of sports biomechanics in middle and high school athletics.
20 years ago, Paul Mbugua was coached in Kenya by Coach John Mwithiga. Today, Coach Mwithiga has risen to the top rank of coaches in Kenya, as he has coached the National Kenyan Cross Country Team for the past 8 years. He has won the World Cross Country Championships the past 8 years.
Coach Mwithiga has now accepted a new challenge; to hand-pick 8 young Kenyan runners to run for Team CPOYA.com. He has chosen his runners, and they are now focused on competing for Kenya in the 2016 Olympics being held in Rio de Janeiro. This training center allows them to focus on nothing but running and competing, and Coach Mwithiga is guiding them each and every day.
Team CPOYA.com will be seen in the U.S. at major events, as well as races in Asia and Europe, beginning in 2013 through 2016.
