Sophie joined our team with already having a bit of experience in triathlon, as well as having watched her Mum race. Over the past season and a half, she has gotten even stronger in each discipline and has begun to set goals for herself and work towards reaching them (she recently nailed her flying mount and has checked that one off the list).

Aside from being incredibly photogenic even while racing, she knows how to have fun with the team, and is always coming up with ideas. She got a taste of the podium last year and I can't wait to see what this year holds for her!!!
