Wellington started her professional career in 2007. She holds all three world and tournament records relating to ironman-distance triathlon races: the overall world record, the Ironman World Championship course record, along with the official world record for many Ironman-branded triathlon races over the entire Ironman distance. She won the World Championship in three straight years in 2007-2009. Nevertheless, she cannot begin the 2010 World Championship race due to sickness. She then recovered the title in 2011.
Chrissie Wellington is the first British athlete to hold the Ironman Triathlon World Championship and stays undefeated over the Ironman distance. She is also one of only three girls to have achieved three consecutive successes in the Ironman World Championships. The other two are Natascha Badmann and Paula Newby-Fraser. Newby-Fraser’s course record in the World Championships had stood for 17 years until Wellington broke it in 2009. She holds the four fastest times ever recorded by a female over the Iron distance and contains the greatest variety of sub-9 hour times — nine, five more than Newby-Fraser’s previous record. She was also the 2006 ITU Age Group World Champion and the 2008 ITU long distance World Champion.
