Kiwi and Australian champions join the CurraNZ Australasian team of ambassadors

on August 16, 2017

WE'RE delighted to announce two new ambassadors for our newly-launched operation 'Downunder' - reigning Australasian Multi-Sport Champion Dougal Allan and seven-time Australian team ultra-runner, Andy Heyden.

A regular competitor at international long-distance triathlons, Dougal Allan (main picture) won the Challenge Wanaka triathlon (3.8km swim, 180km bike, 42.2km run) in course record time in January. He finished a brilliant second in Challenge Taiwan and was seventh in Germany's brutal Challenge Roth in July. 

Dougal is ranked the sixth-best in the world on the bike for IronMan triathlon. 
Dougal says: "Quickly after starting to use CurraNZ, I noticed improvements to my health and performance. I've been recovering quickly between key training sessions and I travelling around the world to races and arriving in good shape and performing well.
"When I run out of supplies I notice my body returns to feeling tight and more inflamed as it always had before discovering this incredible product. Wherever I go, my CurraNZ now comes with me."

Australian distance runner seeing his performance go to new levels - at 43!

WE are also delighted to welcome the brilliant Sydney-based all-distance runner for Australia, Andy Heyden (pictured, below).

Andy has represented Australia at seven 100km World Championships and was Australian 50km Champion in 2013.

This year, Andy is the NSW Masters Age Group 5,000m Champion and has also taken the honours in the Gold Coast Southern Cross 10km and Sydney Harbour 10km.

Since starting on CurraNZ, Andy has set two new personal bests, over 14km and for 10km. 

He says: "Another race and another PB! This time the 14km City to Surf, the world's largest run and a tough hilly race.

"I trimmed 25 secs off my PB, finished 34th out of 65,000 and first out of 6,200 in my age group. 

"I'm very pleased. Not bad at 43 yrs old! Also, the legs felt pretty good -  so CurraNZ certainly seem to be helping my recovery too."
