Interview with Geoff Lucas January 2015
Geoff Lucas is the Chief Operating Officer of McGrath Estate Agents, based in Sydney. He joined the SWEAT team in 2007, the same time that his daughter, Dominica, joined the Kid’s Group. Dominica, now 16, joins him at the morning training sessions.
You are part of a popular father/daughter combination in the morning squad. What is it like training alongside your teenage daughter, Dominica?
As a parent it is very special to be able to both do something you love together. It’s also incredible to watch the progression from a little 8 year old into a young lady of 16. It’s been wonderful to be part of some of the friendships Dominica has developed through the group and her competition as a younger athlete. We both enjoy the challenges of early mornings and being accountability partners for each other when one doesn’t quite feel like training.
Attending the camps with your daughter is also an amazing experience. As a father of three daughters, we often go away as a family – the camps provide a unique opportunity to have one on one time both travelling and in the down times at the camps – unrepeatable opportunities to enhance the bond between father and daughter.
