Coached by her mother and four-time Olympian Nancy Swider-Peltz, Nancy Swider-Peltz, Jr. is a force to be reckoned with. As the 2009 U.S. Ladies' Allround Champion, Swider-Peltz, Jr. was also the 2005 U.S. Junior Ladies Overall Champion.
Swider-Peltz, Jr. had the experience of competing against her mother at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials in 2001, even paired together in the first race. However, neither Swider-Peltz made the Olympic team that year. But Swider-Peltz, Jr. proved her skill when she won the 3000m event at the 2010 U.S. Speedskating Championships, earning an Olympic spot in the distance.
During the 2009-10 World Cup season, Swider-Peltz, Jr. competed in five World Cup events, skating the 3000m and 5000m events
