Position style: Left-eye, left-hand (but is right-handed) (Athlete, 1 Jul 2017)
Reason: "My interest in clay target shooting came from following my dad around the gun club since the age of 10. I obtained my junior firearm licence as soon as I turned 12." Took up skeet in 2012. (Athlete, 1 Jul 2017)
Ambition: "I want to win Olympic gold for Australia at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games." (Athlete, 1 Jul 2017)
Memorable: At Rio 2016 Olympic Games, became the youngest shooter to compete for Australia at an Olympics (16 years and 179 days). "And I was the youngest shooter out of 390 athletes." (Athlete, 1 Jul 2017)
Influence: "My parents and coach Lauryn, because without them I would not be where I am now. They have supported me on my journey and been there to help me to achieve my goals." (Athlete, 1 Jul 2017)
Ritual: "Warm up, stretch and listen to music." (Athlete, Oct 2017)
Additional information

UNIQUE
Learned to shoot at moving targets in a quarry, with her father winding cans along the ground on a fishing line. (olympics.com.au, May 2017)


HANDY
Because she is left-eye dominant, learned from the start to shoot left-handed, despite being naturally right-handed. "Now picking up a gun right-handed feels unnatural." (Athlete, 1 Jul 2017)

STRONG FORM
Bronze in the skeet at 2017 Commonwealth Shooting Championships at Belmont in Brisbane in October - a test event for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. (shootingaustralia.org, 31 Oct 2017)

AWARD
Named East Gippsland Shire Council's Young Citizen of the Year in January 2018. (Lakes Post, 24 Jan 2018)
