Vicky is a member of the UK Sport Lottery Funded World-Class Performance Squad based in Bath. She is coached by Rhys Davey. In winning the bronze medal for Team GB at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Vicky became the first British woman ever to win an Olympic triathlon medal.
Vicky had a successful build up towards Rio, featuring on an ITU World Triathlon Series podium in 2016, when she won bronze in Leeds in June. She also celebrated a fantastic 2015 season, winning two ITU World Triathlon Series races in Cape Town and Edmonton, before taking bronze at the Rio de Janeiro ITU World Olympic Qualification Event.
Vicky won bronze at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games and helped Team England win gold in the Mixed Relay.
Rio was Vicky's second Olympic games, having been selected for London 2012 to support Helen Jenkins. In London she crashed on the bike but got up and continued, finishing 26th. Rio brought different fortunes, with a well executed race resulting in a bronze medal.
The housemate and friend of teammate, Non Stanford has twice been part of ITU World Championship winning relay teams for Great Britain (2012 and 2014).
