Amy is a two times World Champion, four times Junior World Champion, Team Pursuit World Record Holder, 2km Individual Pursuit Junior World Record Holder, 2x Olympian and Commonwealth Games Medallist.
Amy was born in Burnie, Tasmania on the 31st December, 1992. She has a height of 1.72cm and weighs in at 58kg. She first started the sport when she was 12 years old, with her continued passion and dedication over the years seeing her crowned as a four time Junior World Champion on the track. In addition to her World Titles she also claimed the Junior World Record in the 2km Individual Pursuit, which she continues to hold today. Now racing in the Open Women's category she has since become a two time Track World Champion and as of 2015 is the current World Record Holder in the Teams Pursuit.
Her passion for cycling has enabled her to progress to a professional level. Just two years into the Elite ranks, Amy was selected for the Olympic Games in London.
In February 2014 she gained her first World Championship medal on the track, followed by silver and bronze medals at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games. Not satisfied with one world title, Amy backed up 2014 to win the 2015 Teams Pursuit with Melissa Hoskins, Ashlee Ankudinoff and Annette Edmondson where they also smashed Great Britain's World Record by over three seconds.
The pinnacle of her achievements to date was being nominated for, and winning, the 2014 Female Track Rider of the Year award. Winning this award as well as the title of 2014 AIS Sports Performance Junior Athlete of the Year have been her greatest honours to date.
Amy has represented Australia at an astounding 8 consecutive World Championships, 2 as a junior and 6 as a senior. She has also medalled in almost every World Championship event she has entered over the last 4 years, bringing home 8 medals for Australia.
Her passion for cycling spans both track and road, as she raced for professional women's team Lotto-Belisol Ladies team in 2014 and the Lotto-Soudal Ladies team in 2015.
Her future goals include winning a Gold Medal on the track at the Rio Olympics.
