Well, well, well, Chrissie Wellington

Okay for those of you who don't know the story yet, it can be found here.

What happened in the Pro Women's race at the Hawaii Ironman in Kona this year was nothing short of incredible. The gist is basically this. Chrissie Wellington turns pro at the beginning of 2007. Does her first Ironman in Korea about 7 weeks ago and wins. As a result she gets a coveted slot in Kona. Said triathlete then goes on to win the World Championship by almost 6 minutes over a stellar field with a 2:59:57 marathon finishing in 9:08:45.

It just doesn't get any better than this...

For more about Chrissie, here is a link to her blog.
