Get well soon, Mary Beth Ellis!

The eight-time Ironman Champion crashed while training on her bike - four weeks before the biggest challenge in Hawaii.

On the 9th of September the On and teamTBB Athlete Mary Beth Ellis, injured herself while training on her bike. She suffered a trauma to her shoulder and had to consult with specialists. Now the top athlete is no longer able to train only four weeks before the Ironman World Championship in Hawaii. A strike of very bad luck if you ask us! However, Mary Beth Ellis continues to hold her head up high:

"I am completely devastated, especially so close to the Ironman World Championships,” she says  "but I'm happy to be walking and talking. We're working with some of the top orthopedists across the US to address the injury, and I'll be working hard to get back on the racecourse as soon as possible. I've been down before, and I always get back up thanks to the support of my wonderful friends, family, fans and brand partners."

We, at On, wish her a very speedy recovery. We are confident that Mary Beth will be back on her running-feet in no time. 

All the best!!!
