What’s your warm up song?

Charlie Brown - Coldplay

What are you watching on TV / streaming right now?

Orange is the new black.

Vegemite: do you keep in the fridge or pantry? Please explain

I put it in the pantry, but it always ends up in the fridge. I’m not sure why - I think it’s easier to spread when it’s in the pantry.

Favourite other sport?

Skiing and snowboard events - I loved watching the Winter Youth Olympic Games last month

Do you have any tattoos? 

No tattoos… i did contemplate an Olympic tattoo but never got around to it… maybe this time.

Finish this: To play me in a movie of my life I’d want …

Jennifer Lawrence with a perm. Ha!

Who was your role model growing up?

My mum. I also looked up to Susie O’Neil and Anna Meares.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years’ time?

Hopefully finished with my studies and starting a new chapter in my life… i’m not sure in what field yet!

Are you a cat person or a dog person?

DOG! Can’t wait to have my own when I stop travelling so much.

Jessica Fox’s whitewater rush from the ’riff to Rio

Silver medallist at the London Olympics in kayaking, Fox is a three-time canoe world champion, and has booked her ticket Rio as Australia’s lone female kayak competitor at the Olympic Games. All this by the age of 21.
