Karlee Nurthen Ironwoman Athletes Gel Ambassador

I am Karlee Nurthen and i am a Nutri-grain Ironwoman. 


Although I am a professional sports person, I have to fund my competition and training expenses in order to compete at the highest level of our sport. I would appreciate any support towards me achieving my dreams of becoming Australia's number 1 ranked Ironwoman and my goal to be the 2018/19 Nutri-grain Ironwomen Series Champion. 


Being a professional Ironwoman is the dream for many young girls and women growing up in the Surf Life Saving community. I spent many years as a nipper at Shelly Beach Surf club before moving to Terrigal SLSC and while finishing school. I then followed my dreams and moved up to the Sunshine Coast at Mooloolaba to be coached under the best of the best Michael King. We all then moved to the Gold Coast at Currumbin for a new start and have never looked back. 

Without the support of my clubs, family and friends i wouldn't be where I am today. 


The Nutri-Grain Ironman/women series takes us to all corners of Australia and we can be seen competing on Fox Sports from October to April each year. Currently my Australian ranking hovers around top 8 in a field of 20 elite athletes. 


I couldn't believe the heat Athletes Gel generated on my knees when I first applied it. Certainly works a treat for me as I do two training sessions a day.
