/EIN News/ -- “We’re excited and humbled to have Angela join the Topo team,” said Georgia Shaw, marketing director for Topo Athletic. “In addition to being a world-class athlete and competitor, she’s also a fierce advocate for women in triathlon, which makes her a relatable and inspiring figure in the sport.”

“After my surgery, I tried many brands of shoes to start running again,” said Naeth. “I found Topo Athletic with the help of my podiatrist/surgeon and couldn’t believe the difference Topo made. The natural fit and feel of this product has played a major role in my ability to continue competing in the sport."

“As a runner and podiatrist, what I appreciate most about Topo is its natural foot shape that so many shoes lack,” explained Dr. Neil Feldman, director of Central Massachusetts Podiatry and podiatrist to Angela. “Topos performed best in helping Angela maintain stability in all planes of motion and, most importantly, helped prevent her from returning to dysfunctional movement patterns that lead to her injury in the first place.”

Naeth is a 15-time Ironman 70.3 champion and has more than 30 Ironman 70.3 podium finishes under her belt. She has clocked in a sub-9-hour finish time on multiple occasions, including her impressive first-place finish at the 2015 Ironman North American Championships in a time of 8 hours, 55 minutes.

Naeth hails from British Columbia, Canada, and has coached many athletes in all areas of triathlon. A physical therapist by trade, Naeth holds a master’s degree in physical therapy and bachelor’s degree in health science. Before becoming a professional triathlete in 2008, she worked as a pediatric and orthopedic physiotherapist.

In 2017, Naeth founded iracelikeagirl, an organization on a mission to bring together a community of women of all ages and abilities, using the sport of triathlon and other endurance sports as a platform to support, encourage and inspire one another.
