In the sport of Triathlon, few names elicit the same reaction as Tim Berkel. If you have ever been at a race with him, or have had the opportunity to talk to him, you will know why people regard him as “The Good Guy of Triathlon.” Dedicated father and athlete, Berks has a gained a sizable following over the 15+ years he's been racing at the professional level.
From 2004 – 2006 Tim, or Berks as he is known, notched up a string of impressive results in triathlons at Olympic and half-Ironman distances across Australia and internationally. He turned professional at the age of 21. In 2007, Berks debuted at Ironman distance in the Australian Triathlon Championships at Port Macquarie. He finished 7th, qualifying him for the World Championship. Unlike most ambitious young athletes, Tim decided not to immediately book his ticket for Kona. As he said in a later interview: “There’s no way I was ready to go to Kona and mix it with the world’s best. I thought, ‘Let’s not rush it… let’s develop it… and that’s what I’ve been doing.’”
In 2011, Berks took the win in a thrilling 'come from behind' victory at Challenge Copenhagen - his third Iron Distance title - making him the youngest 3-time Ironman distance champion in the sport’s history – a title that he still holds. It wasn't until 2014 that Berks ventured to the Big Island for his maiden run at the Ironman World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. An impressive 7th place finish, after holding 4th position during the run, saw the Kona cherry popped, and the first of many appearances in Kona.
With his own custom blends, Tim's nutrition is dialed in perfectly as he adds to his impressive record of victories and first-place finishes.

As a typical Aussie kid growing up in the suburbs, Ben played team sports including rugby and cricket. He was introduced to the pool at a young age which taught him the strength, patience and dedication to succeed in endurance sport. HIgh school saw Ben take up running which he excelled at almost immediately, posting some impressive results, but also succumbing to some painful injuries.
Once out of high school, Ben took to the mountains of Europe where he represented Australia at the World Mountain Running Championships as a Junior in 2010 and 2011. While running up mountains was satisfying, Benny wanted to go longer, and so his foray into ultra distance running began.
Ben is now a household name amongst trail running circles having won and podiumed at many high profile events in the Oceania region including Ultra Trail Australia, Tarawera Ultramarathon, Surf Coast Century and the 9 Dragons 50km in Hong Kong. He is also a respected and highly qualified coach. With a Science degree under his belt as well as qualifications in long distance run coaching and strength and conditioning, Benny is one smart cookie and definitely an outstanding investment in runner's ultra journey. In his own words, "As much as I enjoy pursuing my own dreams, it brings me even more satisfaction to help others reach their dreams".
We love having this guy on our Team and love even more that he is keen to change up his nutrition and try new things! Ben is absolutely the poster boy for trialling his nutrition in training - a good habit to pick up!
"I choose Infinit because every athlete is slightly different and hence has slightly different nutritional needs. Being able to create a Custom Blend means I can easily get the exact nutrients my body needs during ultramarathons, while avoiding an upset stomach."
Fun Facts About Ben:
∞ Ben has a Bachelor of Science (Physics Major, Honours Class I), a Masters in Education and numerous coaching accreditations - he is potentially the smartest guy we know!
∞ Ben played team sports growing up and only started running up and down mountains when he left high school.

Born and raised in Redhead on the NSW Central Coast, Stewart McLachlan was introduced to the ocean by his parents when they enrolled him at Nippers as a 9 year old. Stew took to Nippers at his local Surf Lifesaving Club like a fish to water. Fast forward to the present, and Stew is a 3 time Australian Open Paddleboard Champion, the current Molokai to Oahu Paddleboard Champion and record holder, a University graduate and is looking to study a PhD. This guy is talented on so many levels.
Known to many in Surf Lifesaving circles as ‘The Wriggler’, Stew is one of only two people to win three consecutive Australian Paddleboard Championships in the history of the sport. Comprehensive wins in 2013, 2014 and 2015 were backed up by his historic Molokai to Oahu win in 2016. The Wriggler completed the 51.5 kilometre (32 mile) event in 5:05:41, a new course record smashing the previous best time by nearly 7 minutes. And all of this – on debut.
Away from the ocean, Stew is a keen runner, tennis player and surfer. Stew likes to spend time with his family, his dogs and his XBOX. Stewart is the perfect example that Infinit Nutrition can be used in all facets of endurance sport – both on land and in the water! We are stoked to have Stew on the team and look forward to fuelling him to more records in the future!!

Nick Sloman is the undisputed King of Open Water Swimming in Australia, consistently winning back-to-back 5km, 10km and Open Surf race titles in recent years. Nick is a 5 time surf race champion at 'The Aussies', having won every surf race held at the meet since 2018.
Having been born with webbed toes on one foot, Nick was destined to be a top level swimmer! The Noosa local has been competing both in the pool and in the surf from a young age, and worked out early on that a top class fueling strategy works wonders for endurance swimming.
Having only just heartbreakingly missed out on selection to the Australian Team for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, Nick has deferred both study and work to concentrate solely on his swimming career. Nick is determined to don the Green and Gold in Paris in 2024, and we will be behind him 100% of the way.
Look out for our 'Slomo' - in the words of Nick's swim coach, the legendary John Rodgers ....... this guy is 'the Real Deal'.
