Gabi Porter

Gabi started coaching with Team Triumph in 2021. After having lived through a traumatic event in the Canadian Forces, Gabi spent some time battling mental illness and addiction before finally reaching out and asking for help. Gabi is a strong advocate for mental health and addiction awareness and has been working hard on her healing journey since 2017. Gabi’s enthusiasm and love of life have been a welcome addition to the Team Triumph family, and she is now the Coordinator for the Beginner Triathlon Program as well as the virtual 70.3 program.

Gabi has since retired from the Canadian Forces and spends most of her days doing what she loves: triathlon training, Nordic skiing, and spending time with her wife, Dusty, and beloved dog, Maze. Gabi prides herself in being extremely average at extraordinary things and has completed a full Ironman race in Maryland, the Tremblant 70.3, the 12km marathon swim of La Traversée du Lac Tremblant, and numerous other race distances throughout the years.  Triathlon training and racing have given Gabi a sense of purpose and accomplishment, and she is dedicated to helping make this sport more accessible to everyone, regardless of who or where they come from.

Fun fact: Gabi is a classically trained musician and holds a bachelor's degree in music performance from McGill university. She has played the tuba for over 15 years and continues to play and teach in local community and school bands.
