The reigning Ironman 70.3 world champ has made a spectacular comeback from injury to take her place in the race and will be looking to dethrone five-time Ironman champ Daniela Ryf for the biggest title of her career to date.

As a world class triathlete, Charles-Barclay also requires world-class equipment, and so ahead of the race, 220 gives readers a quick rundown of what she’ll be using.

As a Roka-sponsored athlete in a non-wetsuit race, Lucy will be in the Roka Viper X2 Swimskin, which provides enhanced core compression, better support and improved posture in the water. 

Among other features it also has a teflon coating that repels water and reduces drag and water absorption, and a breakaway zip for easy removal exiting the swim.

The goggles are the Roka R1 goggle, which uses patented Rapidsight technology to improve Lucy’s field of vision and SPCTRM Optics, a purpose-built lens collection offering the optimal tint for every condition.
