Wavelength - brought to you by bcu

Lucy Bowden, 27 year Triathlete based on the Sunshine Coast, has been announced as the latest bcu Brand Ambassador.

Lucy describes herself as a “Country girl at heart with a passion for sport and wellness”.

Growing up on a property in Adelaide Hills, Lucy has always had a love of the outdoors and was quick to agree when a friend suggested she try a triathlon a few years ago. Lucy said “When I first started triathlons, I didn’t know the lingo, or the names of any of the professionals. I just joined in one day and I was hooked”.

Fast forward just over 4 years and Lucy has racked up some amazing results, including qualifying for the Standard distance team at the upcoming Age Group World Championships due to be held on the Gold Coast later this month.  Lucy said “Four years in triathlon certainly doesn’t make me an expert, but I have definitely learnt a lot since I decided to delve into the world of swim, bike and run.” She is a firm believer in chasing your dreams and Lucy said, “Moving to the Sunny Coast by myself to follow a dream that only I could see for myself, is something I’m proud of”.

Lucy also has a love of photography, with a particular fondness for nature based images. Her skill behind the camera shines through on her Instagram page that offers her 4000+ followers a diverse mix of training and scenery shots.

Lucy starts everyday with “coffee and toast with lots of butter and vegemite”. She then trains between 1-3 hours before heading off to either work or university, and manages to wrap each day up with another 1-2 hours of training in the afternoon.  Lucy was accepted into the High Performance Athlete Program at the University of the Sunshine Coast, where she is completing a Bachelor of Creative Industries. Lucy said “I also eat a lot of food throughout the day and sometimes a quick nap is also snuck in if time allows! I’m usually well and truly in bed by 9pm.”

Once the Age Group World Championships are over, Lucy is looking towards the Noosa triathlon in November and is considering the Sunshine Coast Ironman 70.3 in 2019.

Good luck Lucy! We can’t wait to see where you incredibly journey takes you next!
