From her hometown in Burleigh on the Gold Coast to the world stage of the Pro Skateboarding Tour, Coco isn’t about to slow down yet & has her sights set on the Olympics.

With just over 3 years of skating under her belt, and a freakish ability to take on some of the most intimidating vert ramps in the country, it wasn't long before Coco's talent caught the eye of the QAS skateboarding development coaches.


In 2023 Coco was selected to participate in Skate Australia’s YouFor2032 Talent Identification program. The program which is run in conjunction with the Queensland Academy of Sport is designed to identify, select, and develop the next generation of Queensland Olympic and Paralympic champions.

Through the program, Coco's unequivocal talent was recognised by Team officials & was then selected alongside 4 other Aussies to compete as wildcards in the WST Olympic Qualifying Event held in Rome 2023.

Coco’s was part of the 17- strong Australian Team competing & although not entirely happy with her run, said it was an amazing experience which left her hungry for more!

 





Coco then went on to compete in the recent 2024 WST Qualification Event in Dubai.

There, her awesome run saw her not only return home with a world ranking of 34, but also the opportunity to progress alongside 18 other Aussies to Phase 2 of the qualification process for the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris!!

 


(Australian Skateboarders who have progressed to Phase 2 of Paris 2024 qualification will now prepare for the two-part Olympic Qualifier Series beginning in Shanghai on May 14, with the final group of eligible athletes to compete in the final in Budapest from 18 May)

 

And although competing at the Olympics is her ultimate dream,

Coco’s remains focused on not only bettering herself as an athlete, but also making sure she still has time to enjoy the things that started her love of skating in the first place.

 

“I just love having fun with my friends & the feeling of landing a new trick is amazing”
