Longevity in sport takes determination, curiosity, and the ability to adapt to what your mind and body needs as time goes on. That’s the embodiment of professional triathlete, mountain bike racer, coach, and 5x world champion Melanie McQuaid, who continues to kick ass through the menopause transition, placing 3rd at Ironman Chattanooga and 10th at Xterra World Championships in Maui this year.
Melanie has raced as a pro athlete in four different sports and holds titles in a slew of disciplines including mountain bike endurance, mountain bike cross country and mountain bike short track; road racing; Olympic, Sprint and Half Ironman triathlon; and offroad XTERRA and ITU Cross Triathlon. Today she continues to compete at an elite level while focusing her energies on her coaching business, MelRad Coaching.
