In June 2012, Lucy participated in the FINA World Masters Championships in Riccione, Italy.
Lucy swam in three events, the 50m Freestyle, 50m Breaststroke and 50m Backstroke. In all three events she was the fastest Britain in her age group and with a stunning performance in the Backstroke event, she became the 2012 Fina World Champion.
This is a fantastic achievement by Lucy, who has not swum competitvely for nearly thirty years since being a member of the GB Swimming and Water Polo squads.
I am sure you will all join us in congratulating Lucy on this magnificent result.
