Maybe I am a bit biased. I am sure their are some good arguments for Chrissie being the most dominant but lets look at the evidence.
4 Ironman wins and 1 Iron distance win in 2008, plus 7th at Hawaii.
3 Ironman wins so far in 2009
12 Ironman carrer wins and 2 Iron dist wins so far!
If you were to go back to the year 2000 or even when Bella competed at the Commonwealth Games in 2002, there would not have been many people to predict the above results. Perhaps only one, Brett!
She would not argue with the fact that she is not the most physically gifted, but she is gifted in the most important area, her attitude.
Anyway, all hail queen of Ironman, Bella.
