It is always inspiring to hear the personal stories of veterans in their field. It was both endearing and motivating to hear Betadine’s Brand Ambassador, Caroline Wozniacki as she shared her personal journey as a Tennis star and about how to remain fit in a demanding game like tennis. The twenty-three time winning, Danish tennis champion Caroline Wozniacki partnered with Mundipharma and the Women Sports Committee at the Dubai Ladies club to encourage women to pursue their personal goals through exercise and healthy living.
As Betadine’s new global Brand Ambassador, Wozniacki shared her personal journey with more than 200 people who attended an event at the Dubai Ladies Club. Wozniacki’s message stressed the importance of sustaining a good healthcare plan when it comes to fighting infections and injuries. She encouraged women to have an effective daily regime against infection and injuries and to strive to be responsibly active in everything they do.
“Caroline is a great example of what it takes to be at the forefront of fitness and to succeed. Her skills as a tennis player, a champion and a woman are admirable and we are extremely honoured to partner with her,” commented Dr. Ashraf Allam, Regional Vice President of Mundipharma Middle East and Africa region. Dr. Allam added that Mundipharma is looking forward to working with Wozniacki as she continues to raise awareness of these important issues and the role of BETADINE in protecting the community against infection.
Caroline stated that there were very few female role models in Tennis in her country Denmark when she started out. However, her parents who were sporting stars in their own right saw her love for the sports and encouraged her. Caroline first won WTA when she was 17 years. She concedes that there are times when defeats get to you but the challenge is to stay focused, have faith in self, learn from mistakes and move on. Although Caroline believes in maintaining decorum in the court she feels that it is important to be true to self and basically have fun with the game. She looks back nostalgically about her times as a young tennis enthusiast and tries to stay connected with youngsters.
Wozniacki Will use her profile as a world-class athlete to help women as well as the rest of the community fight against the spread of infection. From minor cuts to major infections, BETADINE® products are used and trusted as an antiseptic for more than 50 years, consistently demonstrating strong effectiveness against bacteria, viruses and fungi that cause infections.
