A Life without limits
Chrissie Wellington is probably the best female triathlete ever born. She has won every single ironman she ever started (including 4 World Championships in Hawaii) and improved the previous Ironman world record by more than half an hour. Before starting her career as a triathlete (in her late 20-s!) she had made successful careers first in a law firm and later in an international NGO. Her autobiography, A Life Without Limits: A World Champions Journey, is a fascinating story about a girl who has taken the maximum out of every opportunity of life.
