Bio

After being forced for the 2019/20 Nutri-Grain Series due to a bout of Glandular Fever, Naomi Scott was eager to return to the IronWoman stage in 2020/21. The early mornings and extra yards paid off though, with Scott coming in first during the IronWoman Qualification Round, and then 9th overall in the Nutri-Grain Series. Scott is no stranger to the IronWoman competition however, having qualified for her first series on her 17th birthday.


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

6 years old. I started Nippers in U7’s at Queenscliff because my older brother had some friends who wanted him for a swim team. I fell in love with the sport instantly and have been doing it ever since.

Who was your hero growing up in and out of surf lifesaving?

Floody (Naomi Flood) was my idol growing up in Surf Lifesaving. For starters was have the same name and she was one of the local IronWomen doing really well in the sport when I was a kid. She has done amazing things in and out of the sport!

Now, I look up to Ali Day and his style of racing.

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