Karen Toulmin was a 30-year-old mother managing the family’s 211ha sheep and beef property in Hawke’s Bay when she took up Triathlons in 2014. After dominating the amateur age group events, she was granted Professional Endorsement by Triathlon New Zealand in 2017, and is quickly building a reputation as one of Australasia’s top performing professional athletes.

By integrating her training with her farming, she has been able to create a unique training regimen that allows her to build her strength, power and endurance while fitting in life as a busy farm owner.

Ngarama Milner-Olsen has been a representative athlete for over a decade, playing representative netball for Wellington and professional stints with the Capital Shakers and Pulse netball teams. After retiring from netball, Nga tried her hand at triathlon and quickly became addicted to the sport. The transition from Netball to triathlon surpassed her early expectations. What initially was an attempt to find a fitness outlet after the rigours of playing top level netball has turned out to be a moment of self discovery. Nga demonstrated an underlying talent for competing in the multi-disciplined sport of triathlon, which she thoroughly enjoys. Nga is also founder of Mobile Fitness Solutions, a health and fitness business that specialises in triathlon training, coaching and mentoring high level athletes from a range of sports. In 2015, Nga competed in the ITU Long Distance Triathlon World Championships in Sweden and achieved a bronze medal for her efforts. Her current goal is bettering her sub 11 hour time for the 2016 Ironman New Zealand.

CALLUM MCCOWATT

Callum2Hello. I am Callum McCowatt, I am from Olé Football Academy and I play for Western Suburbs. Last year, I was lucky enough to play in the Under 17 FIFA World Cup for New Zealand in which we travelled to Chile and played against some world class competition including teams like France and Brazil. Last year, Proactive gave a great presentation on diet and nutrition to the academy. It has changed the way we eat! I am a big fan of scrambled eggs with capsicum.
