Laura is an Australian 10m platform diver, but that was not always the case. Previously an elite gymnast, she transferred through the VIS to Diving, after having career ending back surgery. Now, she is a member of the National Diving Team and regularly competes on the world stage in both the 10m Individual and Synchronised events.
Realising the importance of having a dual career path, Laura has a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism and hopes to host and commentate at the major sporting events. Sometimes our greatest challenges are our greatest learning opportunities. Laura’s journey has seen many obstacles, but she continues to fight for what she believes in and is determined to live her dream. Away from the pool, Laura is passionate about giving back to her community and being a good role model to those around her. She regularly presents to schools and businesses, inspiring people to find their purpose, follow their dreams and to live life with passion.
