Alexandra Hulley

Rouse Hill, New South Wales

Hammer thrower

Already holding the national championship crown for her age division, the 17-year-old hammer thrower has Commonwealth Games and Olympic gold in her sights – so much so that she clocks up thousands of kilometres a year getting to and from training. A silver medallist at the Nanjing Youth Olympics, Alexandra’s next stop on her path to Olympic gold will be the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast. She holds the Australian National records for the under 16, under 18 and under 20 age groups and was named Athletics Australia’s Female Junior Athlete of the Year for 2016: “I hope to inspire others to be the best that they can be. I can safely say that when I win gold, all my tomorrows will have come at once.
