Ollie's Product is...
I have been diagnosed with a condition called hypothyroidism and to put this simply it basically means my thyroid isn’t working & producing the hormones it should be. I have started medication to counteract this imbalance and with the support of Edge I have access to regular blood tests to ensure I am on the correct dosage of medication.
Ollie Turner is a professional triathlete from Jersey Channel Islands, currently training in Cardiff, Wales. He studied at Le Rocquier School before attending Cardiff Metropolitan University where he studied Sports and Exercise Science.
Ollie currently races at Elite Senior level, competing for Great Britain in multiple World and European Cups. In addition, Ollie was selected to compete as part of ‘Team Jersey’ at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in the Gold Coast where he finished 26th. He will be racing again this summer at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.
Ollie started triathlon when he was 9 years old. He won a team gold medal at the Island games in Gotland in 2017. He qualified for the 2018 Commonwealth games in late 2017 which pushed him to take a year out to train full-time. He placed 26th at the games and headed back to the UK to start university in Cardiff.
At the same time Ollie qualified for his first GB selection with a European cup in Alanya, Turkey as well as gaining a contract to compete in the Super League Triathlon races. Since then, he has raced around the world competing for GB in multiple European and World cups as well as following the Super League tour. He is now preparing for his biggest season yet with the Birmingham Commonwealth Games due to take place in July 2022.

As a professional athlete it’s very important to me to keep regular tabs on my blood markers. Sometimes you need to find out as quickly as possible the reason why you might be under performing in training and racing, and what you can do to solve it. Edge offer a very quick and convenient service and translates the results into numbers we can all understand all for an affordable price.
Olympian, World Champion, multiple silver and gold
I've been using Edge throughout my race season and it has been extremely helpful in identifying where there are deficiencies and where we can make potential performance improvements. The ease of the home testing kits just makes things so much better. It means we can keep track of all the key biomarkers every month, with quick results.

Edge has helped me take out the guesswork on how my body is responding to both training and daily stresses. This objective scientific measure means I know longer worry about how I feel or whether I should or shouldn't do something, as I have the answer from my results.

Without good health, consistent and sustainable high performance isn’t possible. With the support of Edge it is great peace of mind knowing that my biomarkers are in check and really gives me confidence to begin to push on with my training. It also gives me areas to focus on and improve if any areas are in need of a little boost! I have started using the Triathlon test, which provides me with both a comprehensive and detailed analysis of my biomarkers.
