“Definitely loved it. So many things to talk about, but what an amazing experience.” In a video, Lucy Charles talks about her race experience and takes through her preparation for her WTCS debut in Leeds. The long-distance triathlete finished with an impressive fifth place finish in her first short-course race at this level. While Charles only had eleven days to get ready for her first World Triathlon draft-legal event, she was right in the mix. Despite her short preparation, the pressure was on: “It almost felt like the whole triathlon world was watching me, even though you’ve got some of the best short-course athletes in the world racing, like Flora Duffy, Katie Zaferes, Taylor Spivey and the Brits. Everyone was anticipating how my race would go.”
