Featured Nimbler




For Emily life is all about finding the right balance. Being a full time mum to two young boys is a full time job, yet, supermum, triathlete & fitness coach, Emily Huelsermann will not let that deter her from squeezing in extra time to train for upcoming triathlons and swimathons. In the first half of 2018 alone Emily has already achieved a string of podium finishes which include: 3rd Place (Putrajaya 3km New Years Swim), 3rd place (113 Malacca Aquathlon) 3rd Place (Swimon Port Dickson) and 8th Place Women’s (Women’s Kapas Marang 6.5km).
