About Sonia

Why I Chose Purple Patch 

Matt has a pragmatic, logical approach to training and racing, with a flexibility that allows me to embrace the things I love about triathlon. My journey towards a professional career in this sport has been anything but linear, having migrated from the junior triathlon ranks to rowing as a PhD student and ultramarathon running during my corporate career, before recently returning to triathlon once again. In Matt, I’m confident that I’m working with a coach who is open and honest about the strengths and weaknesses I’ve developed along the way, and who will thus help me realize my full potential in a sustainable and progressive manner. From the moment I first reached out, Matt and the Purple Patch team welcomed me as part of the family. I’m excited to embark on my first season with the professional squad, and look forward to growing as an athlete, building new friendships and training my socks off for years to come!

 

Outside of triathlon, I’ve got a PhD in Organic Chemistry...and won four Boat Races with Cambridge and Oxford.
