Australian Teams Dual Representative
Athletics and Surf Life Saving

    I am very proud of my achievements in surf life saving and athletics. I started sprinting as a nipper, age 5 and along the way I earned the rare dual titles of Australian Athletics and Surf Life Saving Age Champion, 15yrs, 16yrs, 17yrs, Athletics 100m and 90 Beach Sprint.

  • I have won 5 Open Beach Sprint championships, equalling Veronica Lee's record set back in the 1990's. I have also consistently placed in the open womens flag finals since I was 15, picking up 2 bronze medals as well as minor placings.
  • In 2008, age 17, I was awarded Most Outstanding Female Competitor of the Aussies Surf Carnival, the Australian Surf Life Saving Championships.
  • Winning 13 Aussie Gold medals, 6 Silver and 3 Bronze so far is a great achievement
  • Representing Australia has been a highlight including the 2008 Commonwealth Youth Games in Pune where I dual silver medalled in the 100m and relay and the World Relays in the Bahamas in 2014 & 2015 and getting a numbered cap for Surf Lifesaving in 2015.
