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

8 years old. Started out as a Nipper at Manly LSC after my parents saw an article in the local paper and I have been in it ever since.

Who was your hero growing up in surf lifesaving?

Growing up it was Courtney Hancock/Naomi Flood as I watched them on TV every Saturday.

My Idol today is Ali Day, He’s an amazing and consistent racer who has a positive attitude all the time.

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

Mindset is your biggest challenger. Learn to control your negative thought and trust yourself.

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

You’re a sponge. Ask questions and soak up every bit of advice you can get so you can learn from everyone around you.

What do you think about on the start line?

I think about what is in front of me.

What do you think about during a race?

Taking it one step at a time. Don’t stress over anyone else.

Emily, what has been a high and low in your IronWoman journey?

High: Qualifying for the 20/21 Nutri-Grain Series.

Low: I’d say I haven’t had many lows, just plenty of learning experiences. It’s been tough, but I have learned to accept that you can’t always have perfect races but you can learn to be consistent.

Do you have any race day superstitions?

I have a morning stretch that I do before each race.
