Other information PRAISE
Norma Plumber the Australian Team Coach is excited about her prospects. "When she came in two years ago she was looking a bit puppyish but now she's really matured and you can see she's really looking like an athlete. For a big girl she's extremely agile and she's quite fast for her size. She's the tallest we've ever had [and] she'll be able to mix it with the best height around the world." (Canberra Times, 21 Dec 2005)
