Amber Halliday is a three-time world champion and two-time Olympic rower. She also was an elite cyclist where she became a national champion and represented Australia.
It was 2011, in a cycling race in her home town of Adelaide, that she fell freakishly and sustained a severe traumatic brain injury. After years of frustration and recovery, Amber is now completing a PhD in psychology and is a new mum.
Amber regularly speaks to schools and professional bodies on themes of resilience and how the skills she learned in sport helped her recover from her accident, and adapt and thrive in life.

"If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don't!
If you want to win, but think you can't,
It's almost a cinch you won't.
If you think you'll lose, you're lost;
For out in the world we find Success begins with a fellow's will;
It's all in the state of the mind.
Life's battles don't always go To the stronger and faster man,
But sooner or later the man who wins Is the man who thinks he can."
