THE DAUGH­TER OF KONA qual­i­fy­ing par­ents, per­haps the best word that de­scribes Bowden is con­sis­tency. The Iron­man Hall of Fame mem­ber earned her first podium fin­ish in Kona in 1997 when she fin­ished se­cond. That be­gan a streak of sev­en­straight podium fin­ishes on the Big Is­land, in­clud­ing two wins (1999 and 2003) four run­ner-up fin­ishes and one third-place fin­ish. She also cap­tured the pres­ti­gious Zofin­gen Pow­er­man ti­tle dur­ing her im­pres­sive ca­reer. De­spite the laid back de­meanor she had off the race course, her trans­for­ma­tion into a fierce com­peti­tor once the gun sounded re­mains an in­spi­ra­tion to Cana­dian triath­letes to­day.
