Steadfast Athlete Sarika has been an athletic and avid sports lover ever since she was a child. Her childhood days were spent riding horses, sprinting, cycling, skating, playing hide n seek and scraping her knees from climbing walls and of course with numerous falls. Her unending love for testing unchartered territory pushed her to perform several Swimathons, Half Marathons, a Full Marathon and a couple of Triathlons including the Ironman Goa 70.3.
Her foray into competitive swimming began shortly before the birth of her second daughter. What started as a workout for weight loss and fitness; graduated to competing in swimming events. The 5km Swim Marathon at Khar Gymkhana was her first competitive event, and it propelled her straight into the Master Nationals winning medals under the category of 100 freestyle, 200 freestyle, 400 freestyle and relays. She was also given the honour of representing India at the FINA World Masters 2017, in Budapest, Hungary.
Her constant need for adventure pushed her in becoming a certified swim coach for triathletes and Ironman Certified Coach. She successfully completed the 2021 Garmin Run Club (GRC) Coach Training Program and qualified as a GRC ASIA Coach.
Shey says, 'we only regret the chances we didn’t take.' Steadfast is proud to power athletes like Sarika who wish to thrive Beyond Ordinary.
