Lucy says that her ultimate goal in triathlon is: “I think the pinnacle of my sporting career would be to represent and win an Olympic gold medal for my country. But to win at a world championship would be amazing.”
Lucy recently made a strong comeback into the triathlon scene following her Olympic participation. There were no significant positions from 2013 to 2020, but in the year 2021, she took to the podium eight times! Three wins, three second places, and two third places. All incredible performances.

I’m progressing well in training, happy with the way sessions have gone, which has been reflected in races, which is really cool.”
In another interview, she even told tri247 that she considered quitting her triathlon career. We’re glad she didn’t! “Definitely. Last year was a tough year for me. I genuinely considered quitting and retiring from the sport. It was a real tough year with the pandemic, financials, and things like that, as it was with a lot of athletes.”
