The geography graduate won the race with an incredible time of 8:31:59, more than seven minutes ahead of her nearest rival to maintain her unbeaten record at the ironman-distance, with her seventh win from seven starts.What makes her achievement even more amazing is that Chrissie was sat in a doctors surgery in Germany only days before the race getting treatment for shingles.
