Beatrice has represented New Zealand at the Olympic Games on three occasions, in 1996 (Atlanta), 2000 (Sydney), and in 2004 (Athens).

In 1998 she won gold at the Commonwealth Games in Kuala Lumpur and gold again at the Manchester Commonwealth Games in 2002. She won the silver medal at the 1994 Commonwealth Games in Victoria, Canada. At the 2004 Athens Olympics she was the New Zealand Team Captain and flag bearer, a great privilege for any New Zealander.

Beatrice was the 1997 World Track & Field Champion in Athens, Greece, being the first and only New Zealander to win this title. She also won the 2002 World Cup in Madrid, Spain.

In 2005 Beatrice became an Officer of the NZ Order of Merit for her services to New Zealand Athletics.

In 2006 Beatrice was famous for her off-the-field performances with an impressive, and very close, 2nd placing in the Dancing With The Stars competition.

Beatrice is currently training for the 2007 World Track & Field Championships in Osaka, followed by the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.

She is a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations, representing New Zealand and Oceania – the only New Zealander to be bestowed this honour.
