    It was all but over at the Ironman World Championship in Kona for Chrissie Wellington.

Big time. Displaying just why she’s considered one of the premiere endurance athletes, Chrissy charged hard on the bike and blazed on the run to edge out defending Champion and fellow O athlete Mirinda Carfrae by less than three minutes, finishing in 8:55:08 for her fourth coveted Ironman World Championship Title.

Former Ironman World Champion and current Oakley Triathlon Manager, Greg Welch, a maestro of sorts during the week of the revered competition every year, is busy showing extra care for the elite athletes walking in and out of the house in the days leading up to the race (on top of serving as “The Voice” of Ironman Kona for countless official functions and the live web and telecasts). Yes there are pep talks. Sure, there are pleasantries. But the most important part of each athlete’s visit to the Safe House is, of course, their gear selection.
