Electra, how old were you when youstarted surf lifesaving and why?

Started surf lifesaving in the Under 6’s at Sunshine Beach. I joined because my older brother was in nippers.

Who was your hero growing up in surf lifesaving?

Liz Pluimers and Hayley Bateup. Liz always had yellow equipment, which happened to be my favourite colour, and Hayley was an awesome board paddler.

What is the best piece of advice that you have ever been given?

It doesn’t matter how many times you fall. The only thing that matters is how many times you get up.

Your advice for aspiring Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain athletes?

Keep working hard, persistence and hard work always pays off.

What do you think about on the start line?

Nothing. I try to clear my mind and let muscle memory take over.

Electra, what has been a high and low in your IronWoman career?

High: Competing in the Nutri-Grain Series when I was 16, and placing well at Aussies and the Summer of Surf

Low: Not qualifying for the Nutri-Grain Series for a few years.

How do you relax away from competition?

I read or hang out with my family at the beach.

Do you have any race day superstitions?

Arriving at the beach and starting my warm-up early.
