Sandra is a runner, cyclist, triathlete and skier.
She ran her first marathon at age 19 in her hometown of Victoria, British Columbia, with her mum cheering her on and handing out water at the aid stations, she has gone on to a marathon PB of 3:01:01 (so close!). She has won short and long-course triathlon provincial age-group championships, and has raced multiple Ironman triathlons, including twice at the World Championships in Kona, Hawaii, and at Swissman – an epic point to point ironman distance race across the Swiss Alps. Sandra has competed in the 7-day European cycling stage races Tour TransAlp and the Tour Trans Austria, which they won as a women’s team. Sandra also twice completed the legendary Otztaler bike marathon, a one-day 250km race over 4 mountain passes and 5500m of climbing through southern Germany and Austria. Sandra is a two-time finisher of the 7-day Haute Route Alps “the toughest amateur cycling race in the world”, once with one20percent team member Amanda Lau, and the 7-day Haute Route Pyrenees, also with Amanda Lau.
Closer to home, Sandra has won the women’s overall race at Whistler Gran Fondo Forte, qualified for the World Gran Fondo Championships, and completed an “Everesting” challenge (it’s a thing, who knew?) on Vancouver’s local ski hill Mt. Seymour, cycling up it 10x in one day to cumulatively reach the 8848m height of Mt. Everest.
In her other life, Sandra’s professional career is as a lawyer with a focus on commercial litigation. Among other things, she has a Masters degree in International Law from Cambridge University, where she studied on a Commonwealth Scholarship.
They have been friends since, and excited to embark on a new adventure combining their skills and talents with one20percent team members Erin, Cindy and Amanda.
