This week, Breitling Middle East hosted an exclusive evening with Dr. Dina Al Tayeb, the first Saudi Arabian to complete an Ironman distance race in 2005 and the first Arab female to qualify and complete the world championship ironman race in Hawaii. The event took place at Breitling’s boutique in Olaya Towers Riyadh with around 20 guests from the Saudi triathlon community.

A successful Periodontologist, triathlete and mother of three, Dina is an inspiration to women who want to follow their dreams. As part of the evening, Dina talked about her personal journey into the world of triathlons and the challenges she faced along the way.  She discussed the benefits and rewards of training and leading a healthy lifestyle as well as shared tips on how to stay fit and healthy during Ramadan.

Dina believes in the power of women supporting women. Her motivation to pursue triathlons came from her mother who was an active runner and inspired her to chase her dreams. As a board member of the newly formed Saudi Arabia Triathlon Federation, Dina is focused on strengthening the triathlon community and supporting triathletes across the region in achieving their goals. 

Dina’s partnership with Breitling stems from the brand’s long-term collaboration with IRONMAN Triathlon, by which Breitling is the official timekeeper and sponsor of the triathlon series.  As part of their collaboration, Breitling and IRONMAN have co-designed the Endurance Pro IRONMAN watches, a special series of Breitling’s ultimate athleisure watch. The result is a set of perfectly lightweight and lighthearted luxury sports watches combining high precision, innovative technology, and vibrant, colorful design.

Dina concluded her talk by showing the audience her own Endurance Pro Ironman watch, which she considers her “training partner” and the perfect companion for busy, active individuals.
