blueseventy and nuun are set to support one of Britain's best long-distance Age Group athletes, Lucy Gossage. The 30 year old from Nottingham, who was Britain's top female finisher in Hawaii in 2008 and works full time as a cancer doctor is preparing for Ironman Frankfurt in six weeks and is set to race in the New Forest this weekend.

Lucy will race at the Swashbuckler Middle Distance Triathlon in the New Forest this weekend, and will be a hot favourite having shown excellent form at the London Marathon with a 2hours 57min performance.

Dean Jackson of blueseventy said: "We're delighted to be supporting Lucy Gossage. She's incredibly successful in triathlon and in her career. She's a positive role model for amateur athletes, and could shock a few professional athletes as well! Her current best of 10hours 5minutes is tantalisingly close to breaking the magical ten hours!"

Lucy added: "I'm not known for my swimming, but I feel like my body position and streamlining have improved with the blueseventy suit. I already really liked blueseventy goggles, and I am a massive fan of nuun.

"I've suffered with hyponatraemia in the past and drinking nuun has solved that for me. It's important to keep putting salts into the body and the benefit with nuun is that its sugar free so I'm not absorbing lots of calories that I don't necessarily need during training.

"My focus this year is on Frankfurt, and I want to go back to Hawaii feeling fresher than I did last time. In 2008 I qualified at Ironman UK just six weeks before Hawaii, so there wasn't a lot of recovery time. I'm excited about this season and this weekend will be a good test."

Lucy is currently doing research into kidney cancer at Cambridge University. However, she races for her home club, Total Fitness Nottingham.
