Nicole Walters

Nicole is an experienced paratriathlon guide having first guided in 2013. She is part of the UK Sport Lottery Funded Great Britain Paratriathlon Squad and based in Bath and helped Melissa Reid to win Paralympic bronze in Rio.

Nicole grew up in Derby and took part in several different sports including gymnastics, basketball, horseriding and swimming, but her main sport was squash, which she played to National level before taking up triathlon at university. She qualified for the Age-Group World Championships at Sprint and Olympic distance in her first year in the sport, as well as competing in a number of longer distance events, before switching to road racing and time trialling for a couple of years. She came back to triathlon in 2013 and achieved immediate success guiding Melissa Reid to world championships gold in London.

 

Nicole has a BSc in Sport and Exercise Science from the University of Bath.

In Rio, Melissa and Nicole had a fantastic swim and were in medal contention through the bike and on to the run. However, they were overtaken and dropped to fourth place before the the USA pairing ahead of them began to fade. Nicole encouraged Melissa to speed up and challenege for the medal in the final metres of the race. The American athlete, Elizabeth Baker, tripped and the British pairing were able to run across the line to claim the bronze medals.
