Athlete Biography

Emily, at 18 years old, is the second youngest member of the Australian Synchronized Swimming Team. She took up synchro in 2012 and showed her potential by making the National squad only 2 years later.

When in Victoria, Emily trains with the Golden Fish Synchronized Swimming Club at Victorian University Footscray with coach Anna Nepotacheva. She also spends much time training with the team in camps in Perth and at the AIS in Canberra.

Emily has competed with the National team in Canada, Spain, Japan and also helped Australian secure Olympic qualification at the Fina World Championships in Kazan, Russia in 2015.

Outside of Synchronized Swimming, Emily is looking forward to studying in the sports/health profession once her Olympic commitments are completed.

Another career highlight was finishing second in the junior solo category at the 2015 Commonwealth Festival.
