Lucy Charles made her Pro debut at IRONMAN Lanzarote 12 months ago, finishing third. This year, she topped the podium followed by British athletes Corinne Abraham and Lucy Gossage.

Leading out the swim with a healthy 5 minute lead wearing a prototype HUUB Albacore Wetsuit for Women, Lucy recorded the 6th fastest overall swim time of 47.06, just eight seconds from the leading male swimmer!

Her dominance of the race continued on the bike where she set a new Lanzarote bike course record of 5:23:29 giving her just shy of a 20 minute gap as she set out on the run.

With a marathon ahead, Lucy set into a good pace to control the rest of the race to complete the run in 3:18:35 and a total race time of 9:35:40 saw her finish nearly 10 minutes ahead of Corinne Abraham.
