Well we seem to be hurtling through them at the moment! It doesn't seem that long ago that we were celebrating reaching 5000 profiles in the Awakening athlete database. In fact, it was just over a month ago. We have a lot more athletes messaging us now asking to be added which is fantastic, and indeed one of our goals all along. We really didn't envisage the wonderful response we've been getting however and it is causing a little bit of a backlog. So for those of you that have messaged us and are still waiting patiently for your profile... We're working our way to it we promise!
So who was the 6000th profile to be added?
Marcela Soto by Mike Davis
Introducing professional Muay Thai fighter Baitong Sumalee. Her real name is Marcela Soto, and she is a nutritionist from San Jose, Costa Rica and we were excited when she messaged us! We do have other Costa Rican athletes in the database, but Marcela is the first from her country to contact us.
She has spent a lot of time training and fighting in Thailand, and can now boast an impressive professional Muay Thai record of 34-9-2! If you get a chance, check out her cool highlight video on her profile. Marcela's got some wicked elbows!
