Coral has always been an amazing Athlete and seven years ago she took up Outrigger Canoeing in order to rehabilitate a broken back. The determined Queenslander used her discipline and training ethic developed from years of high level sport to quickly emerge as the "Queen of Outrigger Canoeing"

2014 was a massive year for Coral where she took out the gruelling 55km Molokai - Oahu OC1 Solo Race seeing off 10 X Molokai Champion Lauren Spalding. The Big Win came as a result of a solid two year campaign where Coral trained like never before in order to become the best in the World.

Previously, Coral finished 5th in 2012 and then returned in 2013 where she finished second to Lauren.Coral is also the Current Australian Champ and resides in Townsville, Queensland where she works and trains.
