We reported last week that two time Ironman Champ Chrissie Wellington formed a new team and switched to a new coach. Today she bid farewell to her old team on her blog:
"My life has always been one full of
exciting challenges, wonderful opportunities, and new adventures. I
have followed many paths, and the path I have taken in the world of
professional triathlon has so far been paved with success and smiles.
Of course, I owe so much to Brett, and TeamTBB.
was Brett that advised me to turn pro, he told me to do an ironman and
he trained me to win two World Ironman Championships. Not only that,
the Team framework enabled me to train with some of the best athletes
in the world; to grow and develop as a person and to learn some
incredibly important lessons. With the Team I reached heights that I
never thought possible, and for that I am truly grateful."
Under my new coach, Cliff English -
and with the incredible support of my friends, family and sponsors - I
will continue to throw everything I have into being the best athlete I
can possibly be. "
