Podium in every ironman she has entered except for Kona, where she has twice started with an ilness.
You've missed some others too, but I'll leave you to return to your research.
If they're looking at contenders for the win I think there's a few too many on the list, to be honest.
But yes, it would be good to see what a fully fit Cat Morrison can do in the race.
Crazy validation problems...
Yup, you caught me, Cat is my sister. Pleased to inform that she does not have the swine flu or some other inappropriately timed virus yet (don't want to tempt fate). So all being well, we'll see a much more realistic account of her abilities! Hopefully she'll get some more recognition and no longer being classed as someone who doesn't cope in the heat (IM Lanzarote, St Croix 70.3, IM Texas and 70.3 Texas seem to suggest otherwise...).
If I could find anywhere accepting bets, I'd happily say she'll podium. Think top 3 will be Chrissie, Cat, Miranda, in no particular order. I think 2nd to 10th is very open though. With Cat of course way ahead...
Did I mention I may be biased?
Nothing wrong with being biased!! If there's one person I want to beat Chrissie it's Cat, but that might be something to do with being from north of the border myself!
Fingers crossed for her!

Loved her tweet about getting a suntan as two of her freckles have joined up!
I can relate to that!! It's called a Scottish Suntan when you go from blue to white!!
Yes, coverage here is a joke, considering how many world class athletes we have. Unless it's an olympic sport, football or rugby, forget about media interest! Crazy how they are all much more well known in the US and Australia etc...
Great Britain - Fostering athletic talent (as long as we like your sport).
Will pass on the good wishes!
Ha ha, hells no I don't triathlon! It would be too much to bear being beaten by my sister all the time! I'll stick to ball games, racquet sports and mediocre 10k times!

Australia isn't that much better unfortunately.The race/results itself didn't even make the front page of the main Australian news website and the article re Crowie, Pete and Miranda's results all feature in one article at the bottom of the sports news page titled 'Aussie makes triathlon history.' Needless to say, there was quite a delay till the article even being published. The rugby results went live on the main news page as soon as the game finished.
Usually better public awareness means the media coverage is better too... I think the Aussies take participation in exercise far more seriously though, so that migt be why.
Nope, he's also not a triathlete. It's just for crazy folks!
