Mensink has a dual nationality and performed the first years of her career for the Canadian national team in national and international competitions. As of 2007 she competes for the Netherlands.[2] In her mission to qualify for the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing she achieved a 9th position in a Triathlon World Cup meeting in South Korea to win her Olympic nomination.[3] She needed another top-10 classification before the deadline to change the nomination into a ticket to China.[3] She came close in New Zealand (11th) and Japan (12th), but came just too short.[4] Her last chance was at the meeting in Hamburg, Germany on July 8, 2008. She managed to finish in 9th position and took the ticket to the Olympics.[4]
