Sam is a relatively new addition to the Team Torq Performance Triathlon team, having joined at the start of the 2016 season. Originally from a swimming background, she has been a top UK age grouper in Standard distance triathlons since taking up the sport in 2011. Over the past few years, as well as age group, she has raced on the Elite scene, up against some athletes from the World ITU Series. The past 2 years she has competed for the GB age group team in the World ITU Champs in both Chicago and Cozumel, coming 3rd in Chicago and narrowly missing the Gold in Cozumel. Based down near Oxford during the week, Sam works full time as an RAF Dental Officer, and travels up to Birmingham, where her and her boyfriend are based, at weekends. She has an infectious enthusiasm for triathlon and is passionate about introducing others to the sport.
