Sealy UK supports up-and-coming Cumbrian triathlete

Cumbrian-based bed manufacturer, Sealy UK, has teamed up with local Triathlete, Rachael Vatter, to support her as she competes at elite level, representing Great Britain in her discipline around the world.

Cockermouth-based Rachael is no stranger to physically grueling and mentally challenging training regimes, swimming, cycling and running up to nine times a week. 

Not only that, but Rachel balances this hectic schedule with studying full time for an Engineering Degree at Loughborough University.

After confessing that she sometimes struggles to get to sleep at night – something which has impacted on her sporting performance in the past – Sealy has gifted Rachael a top-of-the-range Sealy Posturepedic Memory Support Mattress.

It is hoped her new sleep regime will help ease her back pain and aid her training, performance and recovery, ensuring she wakes each morning with renewed energy, and well rested ready to tackle the day ahead. Despite only receiving her new mattress a matter of weeks ago, it has already paid dividends.

Rachael says: “I would, without hesitation, tell anyone competing in sport that a good night’s sleep is a crucial factor if you want to maximise your training and performance. Sleep is a crucial time to let your body recover, and therefore shouldn’t be compromised. My Sealy mattress is incredibly supportive and comfortable, and now plays an important role in helping me achieve my best.”

Holly Venning, Sealy UK brand marketing manager, says: “Rachael is a local girl with enormous talent. We had heard about her fantastic achievements and really wanted to offer our support as she ramps up her training, representing Great Britain. The future is bright for Rachael, and we can’t wait to see what the year brings her.”

Rachael is the latest member to join Sealy’s World of Sport campaign – an initiative aimed at promoting the intrinsic link between good sleep and sporting excellence. She joins a wide variety of current and veteran sportspeople, including British Olympic 200 metres sprinter, Margaret Adeoye, the Wigan Warriors, and boxer Frank Bruno MBE.
