Legendary British track and field star Sally Gunnell OBE is the new brand ambassador for healthcare company YorkTest.
Sally is one of Britain’s most popular sportswomen and remains the only female athlete ever to hold four major track titles concurrently – Olympic, World, European and Commonwealth.
She has this month teamed up with food intolerance testing experts YorkTest to empower people to take control of their health and believe in their abilities.
Sally said: “My message to people is always how important fuelling your body correctly is and the effects it can have on both your body and mental state.
“I’ve been on a mission to promote health and wellbeing for everybody. That’s why I’m really pleased to be working with YorkTest, who share the same values as I do.
“They want to help people to take steps towards feeling their best, so they can do more of what makes them happy from spending time with their families, chasing their dream career to taking up a new hobby. This is something I fully support. I’m delighted to be the new brand ambassador for YorkTest.”
Sally is devoted to her family, married to Jon Bigg and mum to three boys; Finley, Luca and Marley, and is a successful businesswoman.
Since her retirement from international athletics, Sally developed a new career as a television presenter, keynote speaker and corporate wellbeing influencer.
She has been a key figure on the BBC Sport team and has appeared on several TV shows, including A Question of Sport.
Sally has sat on the board for a number of years at Sport England, as well as mentoring a number of up and coming key athletes. She also supports her husband Jon, a British athletics endurance coach, with his athletes.
Rachel Jansen, CEO at YorkTest, said: “We’re extremely excited about our new partnership with Sally.
“Sally is a shining example of how you can be healthy and successful in all aspects of your life. She’s a mum, a businesswoman and has had some amazing achievements in athletics that are still renowned today.
“We know a one size fits all approach doesn’t work for everyone. We know it is about finding out what works for you as an individual and that when you feel healthy and happy in yourself this positively affects the rest of your life, and this is something Sally believes in too.
“We help people every day to get on the right track by taking control of their health and wellbeing, and we’re thrilled to be working with Sally. This exciting partnership will allow us to reach more people, so they can be their best and achieve everything they want to.”
