Alexi Pappas Announced as the Friday Keynote Speaker for RRCA Convention

“Renaissance runner” (New York Times) Alexi Pappas is an award-winning writer, filmmaker, and Olympic athlete. A Greek American, Pappas holds the Greek national record in the 10,000-meters and competed for Greece at the 2016 Olympic Games. Alexi’s voice reaches well beyond the typical sphere of professional athletics: she has written a bestselling memoir-in-essays, Bravey (with a foreword by Maya Rudolph), published by Random House in January 2021. As a filmmaker, Alexi co-wrote and starred alongside Nick Kroll in Olympic Dreams, the first narrative feature film to ever be shot at the Olympic Games, which premiered at SXSW in 2019 and was distributed by IFC Films. She also co-wrote, co-directed, and starred in the feature film Tracktown with Rachel Dratch and Andy Buckley.
 

Alexi will speak at the 64th RRCA National Convention held in Orlando, Florida on Friday March 18, 2022 during lunch from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM.
