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.
