TRIATHLETE

ANA FILIPA SANTOS

PORTUGAL

 

My dream is to become the first Pro Portuguese Triathlete to set foot in the biggest race of triathlon in the world: the Ironman World Championship in Kailua Kona, Hawai, in 2022 or 2023.

I am a civil engineer and started racing duathlon and triathlon in 2006 at the age of 26.

In 2013, I stopped working to focus on triathlon and from then to 2016, I took part in the National Portuguese Olympic qualifying team for the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games.

I raced my first middle distance triathlon in late 2015, which I won. But, it was only in 2018 that I moved from being a short course triathlete to middle and long distance races.

Proudest Moment

In late 2019 I took a break to become a mom on the 8th of March 2020. That was the proudest and toughest thing I have ever done and it’s for life 😊 Now I’m back to the sport with a new ambitious project and I am more motivated than never.

What has Hammer Nutrition done for you?

I have struggled for quite some years with fueling for training and races. I'm not good at eating solids when racing, I have problems with sugary sweet things and prefer natural products, free of added sugars, artificial colors, flavors, chemicals, and preservatives. And that was very hard to find, until I was introduced to Hammer. I love how the flavours are so light and fruity and the gels so easy on the stomach. Hammer Perpetuem has changed the game for me, as I can go hard for hours and hours just with that and some Endurolytes. I also use HEED on a daily basis and Fully Charged when I am too tired and need a boost.
