Julie, who's making her debut at Kona, won the 70.3 World Championships in 2009, and was Xterra World Champion in 2007, 2008 and 2009. She started 2010 with a bang by winning the inaugural Abu Dhabi International Triathlon, beating fellow Brit Leanda Cave into second place. She's having a great year, with wins at the Boise and Boulder 70.3 triathlons, and in her form - and with her power on the bike - could upset Chrissie Wellington's plan to make it four world titles in a row.
