Easily one of the best swimmers to come out of Far North Queensland in a long time, Ella’s list of achievements is impressive. She has demonstrated State and National success in distance swimming, and solidified her dominance in the endurance events with State medals in the IM, Freestyle and distance Butterfly.

She has also had incredible success in the running arena, qualifying for Peninsula and State titles in multiple running disciplines, however forfeiting her position as a result of her swimming commitments.

A phenomenal athlete all round, this girl has the additional benefit of mind strength. She trains like nothing I’ve ever seen with an unwavering focus and a second to none drive.

Mark my words. She’s a machine.
