Dedication, practice and self-control are all skills Liz has in her DNA after spending years as an Olympic Pole Vault champion. Starting the sport at 10 and following in the footsteps of her pole-vaulter father and coach, Liz became the youngest ever competitor in pole vault at the Olympics when she was 18.
Now working in Marketing after making the decision to resign from the sport, Liz is ready for the challenge Survivor will throw at her. She says, “I think Survivor is the ultimate test because it pushes every aspect of a human being to its max, like physical, mental, social. You’re sleeping on the floor, you’re hungry and it just pushes you to that limit. It’ll be treading a fine line between losing it and focussing on the win.”
Liz admits her resting bitch face and love for her king bed and moisturiser are going to make the game hard. However, she thinks if there’s ever a tribe for her, it’s the Villains, saying, “I’m a good person but my personality is very much larger than life - aggressive, short-tempered and a Taurus!”
