Andy is one of Australia’s top Ultra-Coaches with many elite runners from both Australia and around the world on his books. He brings a very scientific approach to training and is always ahead of the game in terms of the latest research as it applies to ultra running. Understanding that ultra-running is more than just physical he spends a lot of time really getting to know his clients so he can help develop the mental side of training without which great results aren’t possible.
He doesn't just work with elites, and takes as much satisfaction helping athletes just make the cut-offs to finish races they barely dreamt was possible.
Wong Ho ChungBorn in Guangzhou in Mainland China, Chung grew up in Hong Kong enjoying the outdoors and nature. As a child living in Kowloon, Chung was always a "wild boy" at heart and enjoyed going up into the mountains to make fire, climb trees, pick wild fruits, and catch insects everyday after school. After graduating from secondary school, Chung became a Hong Kong fireman and after few years a Physical Fitness Instructor for the Fire Department. Chung started running competitively in 2011, and has become a force on Hong Kong's highly competitive trail running scene.
