Olympic Ambitions

TORQ-fuelled Julia Bleasdale is an extremely talented British athlete who is aiming to compete over 5000m and 10000m at the London Olympic Games.

Julia has just returned from racing in Stanford, California, where she ran 31.29 for 10000m. This is 15 seconds within the Olympic A qualifying standard and places her 5th fastest UK lady of all time!

Julia said “I am really excited to be a new addition to the TORQ Performance Team. To prepare for the Californian race, I was training at altitude in the Laguna Mountains. It was tough running up there and I consumed around 1.5kg of Strawberry flavoured TORQ recovery – Mmmmmm! It really did the trick and now I am preparing for the UK Trials in 8 weeks time where I will contest the 5000m. Whilst in the US I also posted a B qualifier over that distance and hope to soon convert that to an A – watch this space for further updates.”

Julia and other TORQ-fuelled athletes will soon be updating us regularly directly through these pages with their progress. Stay tuned.
