Sophia is a German U23 Elite Triathlete. She is the 2014 U23 World Champion and won silver in the 2014 European Championships. In 2015 - her first year competing in the World Triathlon Series - she achieved two top 10 rankings in Cape Town and London and finished 20th in the overall 2015 ranking. Unfortunately an injury and the passing of her father stopped her from racing to her potential in 2016, but she is determined and working hard to be back stronger in 2017.
Bringing sports and university together day by day is a critical part of Sophia’s philosophy. The balance between challenges in sports and academics has been an important factor for her success and she is working hard to motivate young athletes to follow the same path.
Aged 22, Sophia holds a Master of Science degree in Mathematics from the University of Oxford and is currently pursuing her PhD studies in Combinatorics in Oxford.
