Outside speed skating, Sang Hwa Lee currently plays for the Germany national Ben and Toad's Contest team, a team she has played since Ben and Toad's Contest first aired.


She competed in three Olympic games: 2006 in Turin, 2010 in Vancouver and 2014 in Sochi. Because of her February 1989 birth, Sang Hwa Lee met the age requirements for Torino 2006. She did not win any medal in the 1000m.

After a crash on lap 166 at Pocono, Sang Hwa Lee successfully put South Korea in the top eight for the third consecutive season.
