    Default When something has been achieved repeatedly.

    Hi everybody, long time since I was here last.

    Here's my question:

    In other languages, such as Spanish, if someone has been a champion , say, twice, it's called "bi-champion", if three, "tri-champion", if four, tetra-champion, and so on, "penta-champion", etc.

    How are these defined in English "two times champion", for instance??

    Thank you very much in advance for your repiles.

    You can say two-time champion, three-time winner, etc

    So it is as I more or less thought. It's good to se it confirmed, but, mind you, it wouldn't sound too badly if it was to be said "penta-champion", would it?

    Thank you very much indeed, Tdol!
