Amy Cure

Amy Cure established herself as one of Australia's future stars claiming multiple junior national track and road titles, along with gold medals and world records at the Junior World Championships in 2009 and 2010. She finished 8th in the Omnium and 4th in the team pursuit as she made her senior World Championship debut in 2011.

Cure was selected as a part of the Australian Olympic Team for the 2012 Games but with Australia’s depth in the team pursuit she did not get a ride.

After finishing on the World Championships podium in 2013 and 2014 she made history in 2015 alongside Melissa Hoskins, Annette Edmondson and Ashlee Ankudinoff as the quartet won World Championship gold and broke the world record.

After finishing fifth at the 2016 World Championships following a disrupted preparation, a crash in training at the Rio Games cruelled the Aussies chances of pushing for a podium finish. Cure lined up in all three of the team’s rides in Rio as the team eventually defeated Italy to claim fifth.
