Lornah Kiplagat, the African born Multiple World Champion in athletics, is renowned for her powerful, offensive running style that evokes associations with a lion. Her nickname is Simba, Swahili for lion. The lion is therefore inseparable from the sports brand Lornah.


Lornah Kiplagat was born in 1974, in a very small village on the outskirts of the Rift Valley in Kenya. Against all odds, at a time when opportunity was very limited and women were expected to remain home and raise the children, Lornah started her journey. She became one of the worlds best ever runners on the track and the road. In line with her own story, Lornah created the
Lornah Kiplagat foundation that is dedicated to give Kenyan girls a fair chance at a good education. She also created Africa’s
best High Altitude Training Centre, accommodating the world’s best runners and built the first ever privately funded synthetic running track in Iten, Kenya.

This inspirational story encompasses bravery, willpower, dedication, hard work, courage and a will to survive has lead Lornah to where she is today. ‘Lornah Sports’ is an expression of Lornah’s personal refusal to conform to the norm, lead from the front and embrace female empowerment.
