Lucy competed at the 2012 London Olympics, making it through to the semifinals in the 1500m at her first major Championship. She recently competed at the 2014 World Indoor Championships in Sopot, Poland in the 3000m. The Auckland-based Wanganui athlete competed for Stony Brook University in New York for several years while on an athletic scholarship, and excelled, winning the NCAA Indoor Mile Championship in 2011. The following year she smashed her personal best to run 4:05.78 and place 3rd at the San Diego Summer Nights Track & Field Meet making her the second fastest ever NZ woman over 1500m. Then in 2013 she won the New Zealand 1500m title. At the Payton Jordan meet May 2014 in Stanford, California, Lucy ran 15:22.95 for 5000, just 1.87 outside her best, set in 2013. She is the fourth fastest ever New Zealander over 5000.
