We have just been to the pres conference, it was good meet some new people and to catch up with some friends.  It was nice to hear Bella talk about her last race in this sport.  

She has had an amazing career whatever happens on Sunday, A ITU Long distance world championship, we worked out (we think) Bella has 28 Iron distance podiums(top3) to her name she has won 15 of them.  She has raced something over 50, we are not sure of the exact number!   But that is a pretty good win and podium rate.  I think the number of podium positions in unmatched.  Perhaps Belinda Granger has something similar?

It will be an emotional day on Sunday and I will be doing my very best to honour Bella's career with a great performance from myself and at the least giving my absoute all just like Bella has for her whole career.
