BIOGRAPHY

“I was in Year 7 doing shot put and discus at a school carnival. A coach/official ‘spotted’ me and asked me to compete in the hammer throw.” And that is how Alex Hulley, the finest junior hammer thrower in Australian history started in the sport. During a stellar junior career, she now holds every Australian junior record and has won the last three Australian U20 titles.

Over the last four years, Alex has also compiled an outstanding junior international career winning silver medals in the hammer throw at the Youth Olympic Games and IAAF World Junior Championships, the latter she notes is her career highlight to date.

Alex started her 2017/18 domestic season with a large throw of 68.66m, to move up to number three in Australian history. She maintained record consistency over the summer and into the Australian Championships and Commonwealth Games trials, where she won a dramatic final over five-time national champion Lara Nielsen. Hulley took the crown with 64.84m to 64.59m, after slipping to second in round five. The win earned her automatic selection for the Commonwealth Games at just 20. She follows one of her coaches, Karyne Di Marco who competed at four Games from 1998 to 2010.

Coached by former hammer throwers, Bree Clement and Karyne Di Marco, she is studying Occupational therapy at Australian Catholic University in Sydney.
