Female triathlete of the year? My vote went to Rachel Joyce! Sure, it would have been easy to pick the unbeatable Chrissie Wellington… but Rachel is proving to be a consistent, relentless and amazing athlete: one position better every year in Kona (4th in 2011) and winner of the ITU Long Distance 4 weeks later this year. Quite a progression, and I bet the best is yet to come. Congrats!
