At just 23, Tasmanian Amy Cure is already a multiple world champion, a dual Commonwealth Games medallist and is set to head to her second Olympic Games in Rio.
Cure established herself as one of Australia's future stars claiming multiple junior national track and road titles, along with gold medals and world records at the Junior World Track Championships in 2009 and 2010. She finished 8th in the omnium and 4th in the team pursuit as she made her senior World Championship debut in 2011.
A year later she was selected for her debut Olympic Games in London, however such was the depth in Australia’s team pursuit team, Cure unfortunately did not get a ride.
Cure claimed her first elite World Championship title in 2012 in the points race, a non-Olympic event. In the team pursuit in 2013, she won silver before claiming bronze in the 2014 event. She went on to secure a silver and bronze medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in the non-Olympic scratch race and individual pursuit.
Cure was a part of history at the 2015 World Championships when she lined up alongside Rio 2016 teammates Ashlee Ankudinoff, Annette Edmondson and Melissa Hoskins in the team pursuit. The quartet not only won gold but broke the world record, ending Britain’s four-year dominance of the event.
