Rachel Francois, originally from Edmonton, Alberta, is one of the University of Victoria Vikes’ top performers in many years. She specializes primarily in the 800m distance run, however, started more as a sprinter and continues to occasionally tackle the 400m distance. The Vikes have a long and successful history in the 800m distance in the CIS and Francois is carrying on that tradition. Her personal best is 2:02.18 and this year she has big goals ahead of her.
