Amy Cure Announces Retirement

Amy Cure a three time World Champion, four time Junior World Champion, Commonwealth Games Medallist and Olympian, announced her retirement from international cycling on 19 June 2020.

At 27, Amy has had an illustrious cycling career and has been a part of the Tasmanian Institute of Sport since first receiving a high performance scholarship in 2008.

Amy claimed her first elite World Championship title in 2012 in the points race. In the team pursuit in 2013, she won silver before claiming bronze in the 2014 event. She went on to secure a silver and bronze medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in the scratch race and individual pursuit.

Amy was a part of history at the 2015 World Championships when she lined up alongside Rio 2016 teammates Ashlee Ankudinoff, Annette Edmondson and Melissa Hoskins in the team pursuit. The quartet not only won gold but broke the world record.

In 2017, Amy made history by becoming the first person in track cycling history to win a medal in six different world championship events.

We congratulate Amy on her incredible career and wish her all the very best on the next chapter of her life.
