Start sporting career
She began the sport at age eight. (theinnersanctum.com.au, 26 Aug 2021)
Reason for taking up the sport
She switched from ballet dancing to gymnastics. Her mother persuaded her to choose rhythmic gymnastics instead of artistic gymnastics, which she originally wanted to pursue. "I remember being told that it [artistic gymnastics] is really hard on your body and you can break your ankles. I remember hearing that and thinking, okay, I'll do the other one [rhythmic gymnastics] and so I picked up the ball and the ribbon and the rest is history." (theinnersanctum.com.au, 26 Aug 2021)
Milestones
She and her teammates Emily Abbot, Himeka Onoda, Felicity White, and Alexandra Aristoteli became the first rhythmic gymnasts to represent Australia in the group event at the Olympic Games when they competed at the 2020 Games in Tokyo. (thegymspot.com.au, 06 Aug 2021; SportsDeskOnline, 20 Jul 2022)
Awards
She and her teammates Emily Abbot, Himeka Onoda, Felicity White, and Alexandra Aristoteli won the Senior Athlete Recognition Award of Excellence in the rhythmic gymnastics team category at the 2021 Gymnastics Queensland Annual Awards in Australia. (gymqld.org.au, 31 Mar 2022)
