Nancy Schmeler fell in love with cycling in her youth and with triathlon in 2013. After a not so friendly neighbour told her she could never complete an Ironman, she signed up for one of the most challenging races in North America – Ironman Lake Placid – Not only did she finish, but she beat her goal time.
She has since completed several 70.3 Ironman races as well as Ironman Chattanooga, Mont Tremblant & Arizona improving her time by over an hour & 45 min. over the last 5 years Nancy finished with several age group podiums in sprint distance triathlons. In 2022 Nancy will guide visually impaired athlete John in his 1st Ironman in Mont Tremblant. They have raced several 70.3 & Olympic distance triathlons.
Nancy is also an avid road cyclists & raced with D’Ornellas, HIghgateand now Dig Deep Cycling/Racing.
During the winter months aside from the DIG DEEP studio, Nancy can be found in Milton riding the boards at the Velodrome, where she also races in the Ontario Cycling Association O-cups & is a tandem para pilot for visually impaired athletes!
A certified NCCP coach, Nancy is focused on working with new athletes and those returning to sport after a long hiatus. She has a special interest in encouraging women to join her in the sport of cycling & triathlon.
