    Spain’s Javier Gomez Noya is a triathlon force to be reckoned with. He proved so by his lack of time off between wins from one season to the next. Capping off his 2012 season with wins in the ITU Grand Final in Auckland and X-Terra World Championships in Maui, Hawaii, Gomez Noya began his 2013 season in similar fashion.

    Often when professional athletes are contemplating the perfect time to end his or her career, the thought of “going out on a high note,” comes into play. In other words, bowing out gracefully after a huge win, a championship or a massive personal accomplishment becomes the ultimate time to hang up the boots.

Whenever she chose to call it a career, she was going out a champion. The British triathlon legend had never lost a race in her professional career. Enduring the 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile marathon run, thirteen times, Wellington remained undefeated during her professional career from 2007 until about a week ago. Wellington officially announced her retirement, citing that she had “achieved more than I could have ever imagined.”

The Australian power-house has won the Ironman World Championships, in Kona, three times, becoming the oldest male winner in the race’s history, the course record holder and a true ambassador of the event. He has won the Ironman 70.3 World Championship twice, along with a list of other victories too long to mention.
