Athlete Biography

2014 Northern Territory Athlete of the Year, Brooke Peris will make her Olympic debut in Rio as a member of the Australian Hockeyroos.

The Darwin-born forward is the cousin of former Olympic Hockeyroo gold medallist, Olympic athlete and Australian Senator Nova Peris. Nova was the first Indigenous athlete to win an Olympic gold medal at the 1996 Atlanta Games and is big influence in Brooke’s sporting career.

In 2013, 19-years-old Peris made her international debut when she won gold at the Australian Youth Olympic Festival with a 2-1 victory over China. The same year she won gold at the Oceania Cup in New Zealand, and silver at the World League Finals in Argentina.

Peris won gold at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games and became an internet sensation whilst in Great Britain after capturing a ‘selfie’ with the Queen in the background with retired teammate Jayde Taylor.

After her hockey career, Peris hopes to have a career in primary school teaching.
