|2019-22 Vicky Holland Training Partner|
Taking up both swim and run pacemaker duties for Kat Matthews, Sarah-Jane Walker is a South African triathlete ranked 7th on the continent. While she has specialised in short-course racing over the last few years as a training partner for British Olympian Vicky Holland, a convincing win over the middle distance at the 2022 Triathlon Portocolom shows a willingness and capacity to go fast and long.
The six-time Ironman Hawaii winner has calculated that the Pho3nix Sub8 Project, powered by Zwift will provide conditions for an even faster time than expected.
2022 will be a year of two seasons for Lucy Charles-Barclay. This first half aiming to defend her Ironman 70.3 world title, and then be the first to go Sub8. The second half, become the Ironman world champion in St. George and Kona, and perhaps get on the road to the Paris Olympics.
