About Chrissie Wellington
Well-known English triathlete Chrissie Wellington has an estimated net worth of $4 million. She earned her net worth as a four-time Ironman Triathlon World Champion. Born Christine Anne Wellington on February 18, 1977 in Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, England, she grew up in Feltwell, a small village in Norfolk. She was competitive swimmer as a teen for the Thetford Dolphins and went on to swim for her university. She attended Downham Market High School, a local comprehensive school, and Sixth Form where she was a member of most school sports. She graduated from Birmingham University in 1998 with first-class honors in geography.
Wellington started her professional career in 2007. She holds all three world and championship records relating to ironman-distance triathlon races: the overall world record, the Ironman World Championship course record, and the official world record for all Ironman-branded triathlon races over the full Ironman distance. She won the World Championship in three consecutive years in 2007-2009. However, she could not start the 2010 World Championship race due to illness. She then regained the title in 2011.
Chrissie Wellington is the first British athlete to hold the Ironman Triathlon World Championship and remains undefeated over the Ironman distance. She is the only triathlete (male or female) to have won the World Championship less than a year after turning professional. She is also one of only three women to have achieved three consecutive victories at the Ironman World Championships. The other two are Natascha Badmann and Paula Newby-Fraser. Newby-Fraser’s course record at the World Championships had stood for 17 years until Wellington broke it in 2009. She holds the four fastest times ever recorded by a woman over the Iron distance and has the greatest number 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.
