We've seen many top level triathletes, including Susie Cheetham and Chrissie Wellington, finishing and even winning races after seriously bad crashes! With some of the toughest coaches such as Brett Sutton out there, what do you think? Can you name a tougher group of athletes? In last weeks poll, we asked you what face you make when you race?
