I'm not sure if there was an MTV-like 'best breakthrough act' for 2012 in the UK triathlon scene, but if there was, Lucy Gossage ( probably won it. Or should have..

British Elite Duathlon Champion, European Long Distance Triathlon Champion and silver at the ITU Powerman Long Distance Duathlon World Champs just a few 2012 highlights... arguably finished off by perhaps the best performance of all, joining the sub-nine club with when winning Challenge Barcelona, her 8:58:43 winning time that day making her only the sixth British woman to break the nine hour barrier for the 2.4m / 112m / 26.2m distance.

In preparation for the 2013 season Lucy strolled the 100m from where she lives to take part in the Cambridge Half Marathon on Sunday. The weather (watch our extended race video highlights HERE for evidence!) was cold, very cold, but despite not feeling "that bouncy", Lucy still took a few seconds off her PB in finishing third in her (very) local race.

Shortly afterwards I grabbed a few words with Lucy about her plans for the year - and indeed 2014, as Kona is the longer term plan - including the added expectations which will follow after such a great season last year. "If I'm honest... I absolutley hate it" she admits about those pressures. 70.3's in Mallorca, Austria and Wimbleball are currently on the outline schedule.
