Episode 9 - Lucy Charles-Barclay on Age and Performance

June 14, 2019

One of the reasons long-distance triathlon is so beloved is its all-ages appeal. Young. Old. It doesn’t matter. If you have the drive to go the distance, you can be a triathlete. Over the years, there’s been frequent debate on what the “ideal” age is for top performances. Traditionally, “older” (30–40) has been seen as better, with experience and knowledge helping tri veterans make it to the podium. Lucy Charles-Barclay is pushing back. Only 25 years old, she’s already racked up a number of Ironman wins as well as three World Championship podiums. She joins the crew in Episode 9 to explain how younger athletes can approach races similar to older competitors, and how age is just a number when it comes to experience and tri knowledge. We also talk about Allied's successful gravel bike launch in Kansas as well as other recent happenings in the tri scene.
