Susan made her Paralympic debut at the London 2012 Paralympic Games in Para cycling. She narrowly missed a place on the podium when she achieved fourth place in the time trial. Just two days later, she crossed the finish line in eighth place, following an outstanding ride on the 50 km road circuit. After this first experience, Sue went on to win several World Championship medals. She was naturally suited to the demands of handcycling. Throughout this time, she managed to juggle her Para cycling commitments as well as her career as a veterinarian that she is still highly committed to in Bay of Plenty.

Susan officially received her ‘numbered’ Paralympic pin as part of The Celebration Project in Auckland in February 2020.
