It’s a story of resilience.
No woman in the world has jumped further than Australian champion and record holder Brooke Buschkuehl in 2022. But it’s been far from easy.
Throughout her life, Buschkuehl has defied the odds to become not only a role model in track and field, but a leader beyond athletics, battling through two auto-immune diseases: Coeliac Disease and Hashimoto’s Disease, plus a gluten intolerance, just to name a few.
Throw in the obstacles of coming off the back of an absent domestic athletics season with little preparation, plus overcoming rehabilitation from knee surgery multiple times, Buschkuehl has done it the hard way to get back to the top of her sport.
