Angela Naeth


A native of Prince George, British Columbia, Angela ran track and field as a youth. She received a full athletic scholarship to the University of Missouri, where she added swimming and cycling to her hobbies. She ventured into triathlon in 2007 as an age-grouper. She won her first age-group Olympic-distance race that year, all the while working full time as a pediatric physical therapist.

In the winter of 2008, Angela attended a training camp in California and fell in love with the area and the sport.  With some guidance, Angela decided to become a full-time athlete and turn pro. That July, she won her first professional race at the Boulder Peak Olympic-distance triathlon. Six days later, she placed first at the Sylvan Lake Half-Ironman. As a rookie that year she finished in the top 10 at the 70.3 World Championships, placing 8th overall.

In 2009 she was invited to attend the prestigious Team TBB, but quickly became injured and missed out on the entire year of competition. However, in 2010, after returning to her previous coach, Angela stormed back to the racing circuit. She raced 10 half-Ironmans, finishing 2nd in six 70.3 events, 7th at the 70.3 World Championships, and won the SuperFrog Half-Ironman. In her 14 races of 2010, Angela recorded the fastest bike split in more than half of them.

Building on her 2010 win, Angela returned in a spectacular way in 2011 with big wins at Boulder 70.3 and Leadman Epic 250, and a 5th place finish at Abu Dhabi International. Her biking prowess continued to shine, as she posted the fastest bike splits in both of her wins and a new bike course record at St. Croix 70.3.

In 2012 Angela will be racing around the world focusing on the half-Ironman and Olympic-distance events, and other prestigious races including Abu Dhabi, Ironman 70.3 Worlds, and 5150 Hy-Vee.

She is now coached by Mark Allen and is continuing to see tremendous results, already posting wins at Panama 70.3, Leadman 125 Las Vegas, and an impressive win and a new course record at St. Croix 70.3. The results speak for themselves and will continue to come as she works her way towards Ironman 70.3 Worlds.

Angela holds a master’s degree in physical therapy, and, between training and racing, works as a physiotherapist and a coach.

"I'm a very passionate person and that overflows into everything I do - from triathlon to my relationships, and everything in between. There's no instruction manual for life, so I just try to seize every moment and fill it with that passion, and I figure everything else will sort itself out." - Angela
