Athlete Biography

Nicole Beck is set compete at her maiden Games when the sport of rugby sevens makes its Olympic debut at Rio 2016.

The former Australian touch football representative was part of the squad that won the inaugural Women's Sevens World Cup in Dubai in 2009, making her World Series debut in Guangzhou five years later.

Beck helped Australia secure third place at the 2010 Women’s Rugby World Cup which led to her nomination for the 2010 Women's Personality of the Year.

In 2011, the utility from Bulli near Wollongong on the NSW South Coast, took a couple of years off due to injury and the birth of her daughter Sophie. She returned to the sport in 2014 and her daughter can often be seen running around with a football at training sessions at the Sydney Academy of Sport.

Beck was the Australian flag bearer at the 2015 Pacific Games in Papua New Guinea and captained the national side to silver at the tournament. She was a valued member of the 2015-16 World Series which saw Australia claim a historic first title.
