European bathroom manufacturer, Geberit, has this week unveiled a brand-new partnership with Rio Olympic silver medallist, Victoria Thornley.

Thornley steps into the spotlight as Geberit ambassador for the AquaClean shower toilet and will feature in related materials moving forward, including a national advertising campaign.

The ambassadorship announcement follows the latest silver medal success for Victoria Thornley at April’s European Rowing Championships, as she counts down the weeks until Tokyo 2021.

Sophie Weston, channel marketing manager at Geberit UK, said: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with Victoria Thornley.

“Not only does Victoria have a passion and love for the water as a rower, she is also incredibly in tune and passionate about health and wellbeing, something we’re equally committed to by bringing the ultimate wellbeing solution to the bathroom with the AquaClean shower toilet.

“Through this exciting new partnership with Victoria we will continue to raise awareness of washing with water, a movement that has and continues to gather pace.”

Victoria Thornley commented: “I’m thrilled to be working with Geberit as ambassador for the Geberit AquaClean Shower Toilet.

“I have an incredibly close connection to water through rowing and I really like the feeling of washing with water. The AquaClean provides a fresh out-of-the-shower feeling thanks to its cutting-edge WhirlSpray technology, and eliminates the need for toilet paper, providing optimum hygiene in the bathroom.

“For me, success happens long before you get in the boat, and preparation is key in so much of what I do day-to-day to be successful. Preparation is an integral part of training and so having a bathroom routine that sets me up for the day and helps me to recover at the end of a session is really important.

“Technology is also of the highest importance to me, not only in my training but also in my everyday life, and the Geberit’s AquaClean is packed to the rafters with state-of-the-art technology, from its Whirlspray technology to my personal favourite, the heated seat!”
