While she is not racing the IRONMAN World Championship herself this year, Lucy Charles has already made headlines in Hawaii this week.
Quite possibly the best female swimmer in the sport, Lucy likes to beat the men too, “show them who’s boss!”. And not just any men, the top Pro’s, including Andreas Boecherer, Tim Don, David McNamee, Eneko Llanos, Trevor Wurtele and many more were left in her wake when she won – overall – the Ho’ala IRONMAN Training Swim last weekend (FULL RESULTS).
Winner of the 18-24 category last year, Lucy is raced as a Pro during 2016, making the podium at IRONMAN Lanzarote.
In Kona primarily to support her fiance Reece Barclay (watch our interview with Reece HERE), Lucy spoke to Joanne Murphy (www.tritalkingsport.co.uk) about her plans to return to race, as a Pro, in 12 months time.
