Tina, from Doncaster won a Gold Medal at the 2018 World Championships in Denmark, in her favourite event, the Aquathlon which is a combination of a 1km sea swim and a 5km run.
Tina then went on to represent her country at the European Championships recently, again bringing home yet another Gold Medal for the 40-44 age bracket and was also the fastest female overall, coming home with times that out-paced all of her younger (age grouped) rivals.
Double Gold Medals in her first year of competing is a fantastic achievement. When asked about the secret of her success, Tina pays tribute to her team, her training regime and, of course, her favourite mineral water;
“There are many elements to winning. Fitness; lack of injury; training; coaching; attitude; grit and determination and, lastly, the right mineral water as part of the perfect overall nutritional plan.”
Tina’s husband, Richard, explains further; “I did a great deal of research before we started ordering Hildon and I believe it has paid dividends with results. Water is an important part of Tina’s nutritional programme that I manage for her on a daily basis and Hildon has, in my view, the correct balance and mineral input to make it the perfect choice for training athletes”
Spokesperson for Hildon, Simon Prosser, said; “We are so proud of our GB athletes, and particularly Tina, and we are delighted to have contributed even in our small way to her success.”
Well done Tina – we look forward to seeing your achievements next year and beyond!
