Here at TriathlonWorld.com we're happy to say we called Lucy Charles' rise to the top long before she started winning some of the biggest tri events in the world, as evidenced by our interview with the British star before her pro debut in Lanzarote in May, 2016, where she came third.

Charles was on fire through much of 2017, taking Ironman Lanzarote in record-setting fashion last May, the Challenge Championship in Samorin, Slovakia in June, and then leading for almost the entire swim and bike in Kona before taking the runner-up spot at the Ironman World Championship.

Charles will be starting her season at the fifth edition of the Cannes International Triathlon on April 29.
