Brand Ambassador Spotlight: Tim Ford

Home » Sports » Triathlon » Brand Ambassador Spotlight: Tim Ford

When the brand ambassador program was created, Tim Ford was among the first we recruited to tell Thanyapura’s triathlon stories.  We’ve witnessed his uplifting journey and transformation into a triathlete throughout the years.  Tim’s a regular contributor to our blog and recently wrote a post on overcoming obstacles even before training has begun.

Tim competed in his first triathlon in 2010 when a friend signed him up.  He came down with pneumonia prior to the race and found out unpleasant news at the doctor’s office: he had an enlarged heart, high cholesterol and high blood pressure at age 24.  He finished his first triathlon in 4 hours and 5 minutes to complete the 1.5 km swim, 40 km bike and 10 km run while weighing over 120 kgs.

Fast forward to 2016, Tim lost over 50 kgs and represented Australia in the Ironman 70.3 World Championships.  Triathlon training remains a key factor to his weight loss plan.

“I’m excited to partner with Thanyapura for 2017 and train at the best facilities I have ever had access to. The staff and high level of athletes enable me to push myself further each time I come to train there. I am excited for this year and the role training at Thanyapura will have on my performances”
