Jen Leigh

Tell us about you! How did you get into sport? Where are you from? What is your story?
I have always been into sport. I was born and raised in Vancouver and skied from a young age. I was introduced to hiking in high-school and started mountain biking back in the 80’s before shocks.

What is a fun fact about you or something not many people know about you?
I enjoy wild swimming and winter bathing.

What has been your biggest struggle throughout your career? How have you dealt with or overcome that?
My biggest struggle has been injuries to my knees. Staying active and wearing Stoko tights have really helped me continue to be involved in the sports I love.

Injury is a part of life, and sport - how did you deal with yours?
I stay active . I have found that road cycling and yoga keep my supporting muscles strong.

What’s your favourite pre/post sweat snack? Your must have treat?
Almond butter and banana sandwich.

Do you have any pre-competition rituals?
I commit to having fun and enjoying the event.

What gets you most excited about being a part of the Stoko Ambassador program?
I have worn and promoted Stoko for over a year. I am excited to make it official.

Career Highlights!?
I retired a year ago from a fulfilling career as a Nurse. Now that I am retired I have more time to do the sports I love.
