Bio

Sunshine Coast local Emma Woods started her surf lifesaving carrer at Metropolitan-Caloundra SLSC in the U8’s, before finding her way north to Alexandra Headland for the U11s. Woods will make her Nutri-Grain Series debut in 2020/21 after a strong performance in the Qualification Round. But Woods is no stranger to elite competition, having already represented Australia in surf lifesaving competition.


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

7 years old.

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

Don’t crack the shits halfway through a race.

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

Don’t give up.

What do you think about on the starting line?

I remind myself to have fun and to stick to the race plan.

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

High: Winning the Ironwoman at Wanda Summer of Surf last year.

Low: Can’t think of any lows sorry!

Do you have any secret talents?

None that I’m aware of but I’m sure I have one that annoys people under the tent.

Do you have any pets?

A dog called Sparkles who hates people.
