1. For starters, she’s an archer, which is probably the most badass of all sports

 

 

2. The 23-year-old is from Perth, but quit her job in February and self-funded a move to Brisbane to train with the national squad

 

 

3. She’s a Harry Potter fan, and got to meet doofus-come-heartthrob Neville Longbottom

 

 

4. She’s super into Halloween

 

 

5. She’s a big footy fan, supporting the Fremantle Dockers

 

 

6. And partial to a medieval fair

 

 

7. Ingley keeps all of her plane tickets as mementos, which is such a good idea, we’re jealous we didn’t think of it ourselves

 

 

8. She was selected for a scholarship at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra in 2008, where she stayed until 2010

 

 

9. She was a reserve at the London Olympics, but is now getting her chance at the big time
