Linh’s presentation to our group was an absolute delight! She was an excellent speaker and shared her athletic experiences in an engaging, warm and often funny way. Linh made us feel like we could get off our couches and do something extraordinary – a very powerful message. The personal pictures accompanying her presentation elicited gasps of amazement from the audience. A very interesting and entertaining speaker.”

University of Calgary – Keynote Speaker

The University of Calgary was hosting its 3rd Annual Arts Gala. I got to deliver a keynote speech to the graduates of the Arts Faculty. How wonderful to connect with new graduates as they navigate the transition from school life into their careers.  An AMAZING event!

GRAND SLAM!!!

GRAND SLAM

On November 11, I set three Canadian records:

– 1st Canadian woman to complete the Last Desert ultra in Antarctica

– 1st Canadian woman to complete the Four Deserts Series

– 1st Canadian woman to complete the Four Deserts Series as a Grand Slam (all in one year)

I became the 8th woman in history to accomplishment this Grand Slam feat.

4 hard-earned medals!

A few years ago, I completed a marathon in Antarctica (2011) and the North Pole (2013). And then I began to wonder what else I could attempt. The Four Deserts is a series of 7 day, 250 km self-supported races through four deserts (Jordan, China, Chile and Antarctica)
