We caught up with the amazing triathlete Jacqui Allen.

Jacqui is originally from Stoke-on-Trent, where we grew up and developed an interest in swimming and then triathlons.  She went on to become a fire fighter before deciding to pursue the dream of becoming a professional triathlete.  She’s now a world class competitor with many wins under her belt – she currently lives in Australia with her husband (and fellow triathlete), Ben.

We spoke to Jacqui about her journey and delved into her childhood, triathlon career so far, and her top tips for us at home!
