Rolando Vera Biography

Rolando Vera is a famous Marathon Runner, who was born on April 27, 1965 in Ecuador. Rolando Patricio Vera Rodas (born April 27, 1965 in Cuenca, Azuay) is a retired long-distance runner from Ecuador, who represented his native country at three consecutive Summer Olympics, starting in 1988. He reached the top ten of the 10,000 metres at the 1987 World Championships in Athletics. He enjoyed much championship success at the regional level: he was a two-time South American Champion on the track and won gold medals at the South American Games and Bolivarian Games, as well as reaching the podium at the Ibero-American Championships and the 1987 Pan American Games. According to Astrologers, Rolando Vera's zodiac sign is Taurus.

He won road running competitions on four continents and was tenth at the 1994 IAAF World Half Marathon Championships. Vera won the Saint Silvester Road Race four times consecutively in the 1980s. In 1995 he won both the Los Angeles Marathon and the Chuncheon Marathon, and he won the Beppu-Ōita Marathon two years later. At Olympic level he competed in the marathon on two occasions (1992 and 1996). He remains the Ecuadorian record holder over 20 km and the half marathon. His personal best in the marathon is 2:10:46 – a time which brought him third at the 1990 Boston Marathon.

At the 1988 Bolder Boulder he won the 10k with a time of 29:07. Rosa Mota won the women’s 10k that year.

He also went on to win at the Chuncheon Marathon that year. He enjoyed success over the 20 km distance, winning at the Ogden Newspapers 20K in 1995 and the following year. Vera’s final Olympic appearance was at the 1996 Atlanta Games and he was ranked 22nd in the men’s Olympic marathon race. He won the Beppu-Ōita Marathon in 1997 with a time of 2:12:00.

He began 1995 with a win at the San Blas Half Marathon in Puerto Rico, and continued his winning ways at the Los Angeles Marathon where he ran a very tactical race, which was held in poor weather conditions. Vera’s outright refusal to take his turn at the front of the leading pack (and thus bear his share of the wind and rain) angered the reigning marathon world champion Mark Plaatjes. After 20 miles, Vera tucked in behind the only remaining leader Bob Kempainen and defied Kempainen’s attempts to shake him off – following his zig-zag movements across the road. Finally taking the lead in the final stages, Vera enjoyed a tailwind and won the race in 2:11:39 (twenty seconds ahead of the other runners). Kempainen later commented: “I kept trying to get him out front to take the lead, but I couldn’t very well turn around and ask him to do it…I guess he ran it smart”.
