Tamara is a 17 year old student of Westlake Girls' High School that will represent New Zealand at the Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympic Games.
How did you get
into your sport? I started playing indoor volleyball in 2015 and my indoor
coach Lucielle told me to try beach volleyball. She got me to go to a beach
volleyball development programme and at first it was a struggle going from
indoor to beach. I started training and playing tournaments in early 2017 and I
began to get used to it and have really enjoyed it since then.
What do you love about the sport? I love playing the different variety of shots and I like the intensity of the game.
What inspires you? My friends and family because they give me so much support for what I do and that inspires me to keep going.
Career highlight: Winning the Oceania Youth Olympic Games qualification spot
