Bella talking with Tri247 about her move into coaching

Possibly Bella's main ability was her rate of recovery, allowing her to race week after week.

Bella started her triathlon career believing "I know I can be special, I just know it!". Now as a coach, Bella asks each triathlete she works with "believe in your greatness, train hard and be the best you can be".
