Flight Lieutenant Lucy Nell


My career highlight so far

One of my career highlights so far has been gaining my Elite Athlete Status in the Royal Air Force. With the support of the RAF I have been able to take some time out of my primary job, as an RAF doctor, to pursue my other passion in life; triathlon. I currently train with Loughborough Triathlon Performance Centre based at Loughborough University alongside some of the country's top triathletes.

The best thing about my current role

The best thing about my current role is having the opportunity to see what I can achieve as an athlete, striving to be the best I can be and finding out where that limit is. I am also incredibly proud to race in 'light blue' colours and represent the Royal Air Force internationally.
