Sarah competed in many sports while growing up and had the determination to succeed at an elite level in whatever discipline would take her there. Sarah was introduced to BMX as a spectator initially, attending competitions her younger brother was racing in. Before long Sarah was on a bike and racing with the boys. This experience rapidly elevated her profile in the sport, as Sarah acquired a style of racing and jumping that was more advanced than most girls riding BMX.

Sarah won her first BMX Nationals in 1999, two months after taking on the sport. In 2010 Sarah dominated the field, claiming her 11th consecutive title in the Elite Women 2" and enjoying a win in the Cruiser Class also.

At 15 years of age Sarah experienced success on the international stage, with a second placing at the World Championships. Sarah has achieved a podium finish at every Championship since, and achieved the ultimate double title win in 2009.

In 2007 it was announced that BMX would debut on the world Olympic stage, a dream come true for Sarah. Sarah won silver at the 2012 London Olympics building on her first Olympic experience, a 4th placing at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

After an unfortunate injury-plagued build-up to the Rio Olympics, Sarah was delighted to receive the news that she was to become an IOC Member after she was appointed to the IOC Athletes’ Commission and proposed for IOC Membership by the organisation’s President, Thomas Bach.

Sarah Walker took on the title of Beef + Lamb New Zealand Iron Maiden in 2008. We are proud to support such an inspiring athlete.
