Welcome to The Greg Bennett show, an AnyQuestion podcast hosted by Former Professional Olympic and World Champion Athlete Greg Bennett.
Greg chats with the world's greatest athletes and high performers to find out how they got to the top of the world and how they are able to sustain it.
Reece and Lucy Charles-Barclay are the most professional team I’ve witnessed in the sport. Their approach to being the best athletes they can be, their professionalism with brands, and how they present themselves to the world with how much they share with their fans … they are absolutely crushing it.
It hasn’t all been smooth sailing. In February of 2022 Lucy was diagnosed with a stress fracture in the femoral neck. From the Number 1 world ranking, the world championship title and all the glory to injuries and having to rebuild. It’s all a part of the rollercoaster journey of being a professional in sport, and they have embraced it with class.
