Phenominal woman - truely inspirational.
And thank you - for being you!
If.. you are ever beaten.. you are at that place where you can congratulate yourself for having inspired someone to have to try that hard and that long themselves to achieve that! (I'm sure you know that)
You have inspired me today. Thank you!
A phenomenal athlete that deserves recognition for her utter dominance of her chosen sport.
However does being a phenomenal athlete entitle you to a platform to have your voice heard on any range of unrelated topics? Personally I think not and that this is part of the "fame" culture of today, albeit Chrissie is a far superior role model than most other celebrities out there.
At least she's not resorted to the likes if "I'm a celebrity..."
Not yet, at any rate.
They should bring back Superstars (again). She'd be dead good at that.
Imagine her on Big Brother. She'd go stir crazy in 20 minutes.
A quote from an article in the evening standard
"As professional athletes, we have a big responsibility that goes beyond performing and it's frustrating people neglect that," she added.
That's obviously what's driving her, and presales for her book?
Yeah, don't get me wrong I'm pro-Chrissie and quite like seeing her pop up on Sky Sports news whilst I'm eating my brekkie... BUT... I don't remember these selfless community and non-tri-PR stints before she had a book to publicise.
Saying that, as a multiple champion and record breaker she can do what she likes! I'll buy the book.

Is CW as good a triathlete as Beryl Burton was a cyclist? Based on record I'd say not.
