Project Overview

I am currently the highest ranked AUS biathlete and the sole Australian representative on the World Cup circuit. I plan to put my full focus into training for the upcoming season and continue to compete and gain better points on World Cup. Wherein, the points I gain during these events go towards qualifying for one of the 12 wild cards to the Olympic Games (see Olympic qualification for more detail). With the results I achieved last season I am currently on track to making my Olympic dream come true (see achievement section)


All donations will go towards training, travel and coaching costs leading into and during the World Cup and World Champs circuit in Europe. Wherein, points I gain during these events go towards qualifying for the Olympic Games.


Any small bit of support would be much appreciated and an amazing help to achieving my dream of representing Australia at the Olympics!



Profile

I am currently a full-time professional athlete and an Army Officer reservist. I grew up in Marlo, Victoria and completed a Bachelor of Medical Science in 2022 at the Australian National University. I have represented Australia internationally in three different sports, travelled to more than 15 different countries to train, compete, and study. I have been skiing since I could walk and have committed the majority of my life around being the best Biathlete I can and representing my country at highest level I can.


Achievements

  • #1 ranked female in Australia and sole Australian representative on the World Cup cicuit.
  • 88 IBU Q points (lowest any Australian has obtained in a decade- lower is better)

  • 12th IBU Cup Sprint, Obertilliach, Austria, 2024.
  • 16th IBU Cup Mass Start final, Obertilliach, Austria (2024)

  • Australian Open Woman’s Biathlon Champion (2018-present)
  • IBU Cup and World Cup team member (2016-present)

Olympic Qualification

In Biathlon only the top 20 ranked nations get 5-3 qualification spots. All other nations can only qualify through 12 wild card spots. Because Australia is so small in the Biathlon world I need to get one of these 12 wild cards to qualify for the Olympic Games. I am currently ranked 3rd in line to get a wild card, so show good promise to qualifing for the next Games!
