There she won a Gold Medal, and three Silver Medals.

Despite missing five years of school during her illness, Victoria graduated on-time with her triplet brothers, from Exeter High School (New Hampshire)  in June of 2013.

Victoria is now an on-air TV personality with ESPN reporting for numerous programs including X-Games, Invictus Games, The ESPY Awards, espnW, Frozen Four, Special Olympics World Games and Sportscenter. •

In the fall of 2017, Victoria competed on Dancing With The Stars for nine weeks and was eventually a semi-finalist.  She appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and in People Magazine, along with numerous other media outlets.
