At the age of 10, Angela Naeth watched the Ironman World Championship on TV and felt that one day she wanted to give that race a try. Coming off of a sixth place finish at Ironman Melbourne and a win at Ironman Hawaii 70.3, she just might be joining the best in the world at that legendary starting line in Kona on October 11th.
Canadian Angela Naeth is having a great year in 2011. She took second place at both the Galveston 70.3 and the St. Croix 70.3. How good is she? In St. Croix, she held off Ironman World Champion Mirinda Carfrae in the run. That doesn’t happen very often! She followed those two races with a win in the woman’s division and a second place overall to Jordan Rapp at the Leadman250 Triathlon, which consists of a 3.1 mile swim, a 138.6 mile bike and finishes up with a 13.7 run.
