A message from Pen-y-bont Triathlon club
As a club we are heartbroken to have lost such a committed, determined and caring individual. Lucy oozed positivity and was an inspiration to so many. Not just within our club but to the wider sporting community. As well as her friends, colleagues and family. She put her heart and soul into everything she did and seeing her achieve so much in her life is incredible.
Lucy and her husband Evan have brought so much to our club and made some great friendships within it too. We will continue to support Evan and his family through this however we can. She was an outstanding athlete across the board. Starting her love for cycling with Tondu Wheelers and also being a part of the CrossFit Community with Crossfit Penybont who are all equally as heartbroken.
She was out doing what she loved and this tragic incident has created such a great loss. Those that were lucky enough to have known her, know she was super woman with one of our members describing her as a “warrior princess” and that’s how we as a club intend to remember her. She’s now the brightest star in the sky and we will always have her with us. A just giving page has been set up to help support the family, details can be found here
