Chrissie Wellington: Inside the Mind of a Champion

Chrissie Wellington - The Mind of a Champion

Chrissie Wellington: Inside the Mind of a ChampionIf Kona is where the legends are made, then we’ll long be talking about champion Chrissie Wellington.

On October 8, 2011 Chrissie Wellington battled like she never has had to before to become a four-time Ironman World Champion.

Despite being in great shape, going into the annual Hawaii showdown she was already mentally and physically hampered due to a nasty crash on a training ride just two weeks prior to the big day on the big island.

In this insightful and very candid conversation with Competitor Radio’s Bob Babbitt, Chrissie Wellington allows us into her mind, what drives her and how she found a deeper level of determination and perseverance to leave it all on the course.

There are always great lessons to learn from those at the top of their triathlon game and this is no exception.

  • How can you draw on the inspiration from her performance?
  • How can you better handle things when adversity strikes you at the worst possible time?
  • What could you do to dig deeper into your potential when it matters most?
Putting the victory aside, Chrissie Wellington gave us a very valuable reminder in her post-race comments:
“There’s a lot of emphasis in our sport on times. For me the time is irrelevant. I judge my success on whether or not I’ve given absolutely everything. I couldn’t have given anything more. Going into any races we all have trials and tribulations. All my races are special. This one is probably the most meaningful performance, the most special performance to me.” 

Keep that in mind the next time you find yourself on the start line of a race – will you give it absolutely everything this time?
