Favorite Shoe

Carina came to the Mammoth Track Club in summer 2021 after graduating from the University of Arkansas. She represents her home country of South Africa where in high school she was 11-time South Africa National Champion on the track and in cross country. She has represented Team South Africa in the World Youth Track & Field Championships and the World Cross Country Championships. In Mammoth, she has already been adapting to altitude, but also had the privilege of seeing bears at the lakes while soaking her legs. On a light training day you'll find her hiking in Yosemite. 

NCAA Career

Carina majored in accounting and is an All-American from the University of Arkansas. She was part of the Razorback team who earned a perfect score at the NCAA regional meet. A reliable championship runner, Carina helped the Razorbacks earn 4 consecutive SEC team titles.
