SMART Way Forward is proud to announce the continuation of our sponsorship of elite marathon runner Daniel Davies.
Davies, 27, who recently completed the London Marathon in an amazing time of 2 hours 30 minutes and 40 seconds, has been coached by SMART Way Forward managing director Nadeem Shaikh – a UKA Level 3 Performance Endurance Coach – for the past five years and is aiming to represent Great Britain at the 2020 Olympic Games.
SMART Way Forward first starting sponsoring Daniel in July 2015.
“We are delighted to have Daniel as a brand ambassador for SMART Way Forward and to be able to help him on his international and Olympic journey,” said Nadeem.
“Daniel’s personal best time for a marathon still stands at 2 hours 25 minutes 39 seconds which he ran at Frankfurt in October 2014. He hoped to beat this in London but a knee injury picked up a few days before the marathon flared up. I’m really confident that the Amsterdam Marathon in October will see him getting close to 2 hours 20 minutes.”
Daniel’s London Marathon time placed him 89th overall out of more than 35,000 runners. “We are all very proud of Daniel at SMART Way Forward,” said Nadeem, “and very excited at what the future holds for him.”
