Tiarnee Massie may possess a famous last name, but the niece of former Nutri-Grain IronMan Ashley Massie is is quickly forging her own path through the surf. With some impressive feats on her record already, including a bevy of Youth Australian titles and three Australian Lifesaving Team call-ups, Massie is just getting started on the IronWoman circuit and has already made some waves. The rookie from Maroochydore finished 5th overall in 2020/21 and earned a return call to the Nutri-Grain Series at the 2022/23 Trial Round.. When she is not taking her body to it’s limits, Massie juggles working as a dental assistant.

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

I started in green caps and have been doing it ever since. I love this sport so much and could not imagine myself doing anything else.

My hero has always been Shannon Ecskstein and in later years, Ali Day. Ali is not just an incredible athlete, but an incredible person, and I aspire to be like that.

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

Focus on the process, not the outcome.
