The Ironman of Ironmen?

As we all argue over the optimal recovery period for our Ironman racing, Petr Vabrousek is probably deciding what his monthly race calendar is going to be in 2011. The recently voted Czech republic (for the 12th consecutive year 1999-2010), Ironman of the Year knocked out 11 Ironman distance events in 2010, which by his standard is slacking based on 13 in 2009, 14 in 2008 and 2007.

Oh and he doesn't muck around in terms of times either, of the 95 (yes 95) total Ironman distance events he has raced, he has finished in the top 10 a remarkable 80 times. (thats broken up as follows: 57 times in WTC Ironman events, 5 times at challende races, 10 times at Czech and Slovak Nationals, 5 x at ITU or ETU Ironman distance events, 2 times at Almere, and 1 time at Silverman). How does that rank on the top 10 list of top tens, funny you should ask: check this out. (Petr is waiting for his last 3 top 10's in official Ironman Events to be added to the list, but whose counting. for more
Season greetings
