Sheila’s Racing

Sskathletics_longheila likes a variety of activities, and loves to compete. She is part of the  XC Ottawa cross country ski team, and also enjoys running races and triathlons.

She has 2 World Masters XC Ski Championship medals, and aims for top 10’s on the cross country ski NorAm Circuit, typically racing against skiers half her age. In 2013 Sheila was the first inductee into the “Gatineau Loppet Trail of Legends” Hall of Fame, and was CBC Radio-Canada/LeDroit personality of the week in recognition of this award. This recognized Sheila’s contribution for helping promote cross country skiing, and both the number of times she has participated in the Gatineau Loppet and for her outstanding results over the years (Sheila has finished among the top 4 women in the Gatineau Loppet event 16 times).

Sheila is personally sponsored by Rossignol and Excel Ski Poles, and through XC Ottawa is supported by Podiumwear and Fresh Air Experience.
