A four time world triathlon champion has taken on her toughest challenge yet after her team ran, climbed and cycled the UK's three highest peaks in a gruelling two day non-stop challenge.
Chrissie Wellington, from Feltwell, added the 4321 Challenge to her long list of accomplishments on Sunday having conquered the triathlon world in a glittering career.
In a twist on the popular Three Peaks Challenge, the 4321 saw the 37-year-old and three team-mates scale Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis - with the added test of cycling the 420 miles between the three.
The quartet took just under two days to complete the task, coming in at a time of 47 hours and 47 minutes, having started at 9am on Friday.
Ms Wellington said the challenge had pushed her to her limits.
