About the athlete

Emily’s personality is as powerful as her sprint. At just 21, Emily wants to take on the world. A qualified swim teacher, part-time person-with-disability support worker and 3-years into her Bachelor of Education, Emily is a well rounded decision-maker who can often be found in leadership roles.

Australian Track Champion in 2020, U23 Australian Road Champion in 2021 and Stage 1 of the Santos Festival of Cycling in 2022, Emily + cycling are made for each other. Her current goals are to maximise her national and international racing experience whilst prioritising finishing her degree in 2022 + 2023, before a full focus on cycling in 2024.
