New York-(work wire) –TransPerfect, the world’s largest provider of language and technology solutions to global companies, and sponsor of the Michele Graglia ultramarathon, has teamed up with Graglia to announce the US edition of the first internationally published book ULTRA: The best model for the best runner.
The June 22, 2021 edition is available in paperback, hardcover, and digital formats. The audiobook, which was recently recorded at TransPerfect’s MediaNEXT Studios in Los Angeles, is due for release in July.
The Graglia is one of the most successful Ultramarathoners in the world, regularly competing at the world’s highest level in races of over 26.2 miles and winning events such as the Badwater 135, which is considered the “Hardest Running Race in the World” and one of the most recognized titles on the Ultramarathon circuit. Most recently, in 2020, Graglia won the MOAB 240, beating runner-up David Goggins by more than 90 minutes. Graglia has won multiple Ultramarathons and has broken seven course records since 2012.
Graglia’s other notable achievements include the first two rounds of the TransPerfect 4×4 Desert Crossing project. The first crossing of the Atacama Desert in Chile was completed in 2018 in 8 days, 16 hours and 58 minutes. The second, 2019 across the Gobi Desert in Mongolia, took 23 days, 8 hours and 46 minutes, and covered a distance of 1,703 kilometers. Both majors are records of the included courses.
TransPerfect has served as lead sponsor for both Atacama and Gobi, and continues to support Graglia as he pushes the boundaries of what the human body and mind can achieve.
Graglia commented: “I am delighted to publish Ultra in the United States of America. I am especially grateful to the TransPerfect team for their assistance and expertise in adapting the Italian version, as well as recording the audiobook in their MediaNEXT studios. Being able to connect and inspire new readers and listeners fills my heart with happiness.”
Phil Shawe, President and CEO of TransPerfect, commented, “As someone who was personally trained by Michelle Graglia on the long, grueling treks of the Santa Monica Mountains, I am very excited to bring her story to the United States. ULTRA: The best model for the best runner. TransPerfect is a proud sponsor of Michelle, and we hope that the world will draw the same level of inspiration as we do from her extraordinary sporting accomplishments.”
