Welcome to Non Stanford...our latest ambassador!

For those of you who haven't heard on Non she is one of the top elite triathletes in the country narrowly missing out on an Olympic medal at the 2016 games.

We have teamed up with her to help support her push to become a gold medallist but also for her to share some of her insights into what it takes to become a great triathlete...or should we say athlete, as many of the skills and processes Non will go thru on a daily basis could help you regardless of your goals.

Non is a member of the UK Sport Lottery Funded World-Class Performance Squad and is based at the Leeds Performance Centre. Non was the ITU World Champion in 2013 and represented Team GB at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, where she finished 4th.

2016 started successfully for Non. She opened her season with a win in the ITU World Triathlon Series Event in Cape Town. Competing in her first Olympics in Rio August 2016, Non finished in an agonising 4th place, losing out on the bronze medal to teammate and friend Vicky Holland in a sprint for the finish line.

“As an Elite athlete it’s my job to prepare my body to perform at its best on a daily basis, and the fuel I provide it with is one of the key factors that allows me to do this. I believe, in all aspects of life, you get out what you put in. So why would I put anything less than the best in, when I expect nothing less than the best from myself day in, day out? That’s why I choose Athleat; premium quality meat so I know I’m always getting the best.” 

Non made a successful transition from track running to triathlon. 2012 was a breakthrough year, with senior gold in the ITU Triathlon Mixed Relay and U23 gold at the ITU World Championships. 2013 started with real impact with a win in the ITU World Triathlon Series in Madrid, before going on to win the Series title in London. Along the way, she achieved podium finishes in San Diego, Hamburg and Stockholm.

Due to injury, Non's entire 2014 season was missed through injuries, but she came back strongly in 2015 to finish second at the Rio Olympic Test Event and the ITU World Triathlon Grand Final in Chicago - meeting the British Triathlon Olympic selection criteria in the process.

Non won the ITU world title in London in 2013 having won the U23 title the previous year.

She changed her focus from running (she was Welsh Schools 1,500m champion in ’02, ’03 and ’04) to triathlon after a series of injuries kept her off the track. Non had been picked out as a bright young running talent in 2004 when she was invited to join Kelly Holmes on the first ever 'On Camp with Kelly' at a camp in South Africa. In 2006 she finished 3rd in the 3000m (senior) at the AAA Indoor championships. She took up triathlon seriously with the University of Birmingham Triathlon team.

Non was born in Bridgend, lived in Swansea and went to University in Birmingham before relocating to Leeds.
