The team’s Board of Directors consists of President, Vice-President, Treasurer and Secretary, plus three Members-at-Large.
President Nicole Dunn
Nicole joined Triple Threat in 2018 on a bit of a whim. She was looking to improve her fitness, try something new and challenging, and meet new people. Triple Threat has been a perfect fit! She loves the training, achieving personal goals, racing, and socializing with team members. With expert and supportive coaching from Coach Tom, Nicole has moved from “I just want to finish” to “I want to do much better at my next race!” The triathlon community is full of happy, positive, and supportive people and they are all so inspiring! How can you not fall in love with it?
In her first year of triathlon, she did two races. In her second year, she did almost all of the Manitoba races. Nicole races in Sprint distance and trained for Olympic distance during the pandemic. She joined several teammates on Team Canada for a Sprint distance race in Montreal in 2022 and qualified for Worlds in Germany in 2023.
Vice President Nancy Goodall
Nancy has been a TTTC member since 2015. She came to join the club on the invitation of a friend who thought Nancy might benefit from some cross training given the string of injuries she was having related to her marathon training.
So, Nancy gave it a TRI!! Even though running is her first love, triathlon training has allowed her to keep running but also develop her skills and abilities in cycling and swimming. It was her involvement in TTTC that taught her how to fit a balanced plan of training for all three sports into her schedule. This was through the advice and structured plans developed by Coach Tom as well as the advice and support of her experienced TTTC teammates.
Triathlon has been a great fit for Nancy. She competes in the Standard (Olympic) and the Half Ironman distance events. 2021-22 was a very special year for her as she was honoured as Age -Group Athlete of the Year by Triathlon Manitoba and then capped off the year by racing for Canada in the Age-Group Olympic distance World Championships in Abu Dhabi. She has qualified to race in the Olympic distance 2023 Age-Group World Championships in Pontevedra, Spain.
She is looking forward to being involved in triathlon for many years to come as she finds it is a great way to stay fit and strong with aging so that she can continue to participate in her other hobbies of downhill skiing and sailing.
