•     Zoe Young, Balmoral Triathlon Committee “I believe in sponsorship to influence grass roots and local markets. For me I connect better with an ambassador like Waino as he is talented, but also part of our community and gives back and shares his experiences with us.” 

•     Chris Thomas – Energylink Performance Coaching - We have had the awesome opportunity of being able to collaborate with Owain for 4 years as a highly successful athlete and more recently as part of the coaching team. He is a self-motivated, positive and gifted athlete and coach who conducts himself with integrity and approaches life with an honesty that is admired by those around him. Waino is a coach’s dream and an athlete’s dream coach!”

•     Bel Fong – Owain's Athlete“Waino goes out of his way to help his athletes without hesitation. He volunteers his time to help people with their technique and if you talk to everyone at Balmoral they all hold him in the highest regard. He is the go to person for all things triathlon."
