Georgia Baker’s career continues to go from strength to strength, with a strong performance at her first Olympic Games in Brazil. The budding track cycling star helped Australia to a fifth place finish in the Women’s Team Pursuit event, defeating Italy in the team’s final race.
The Launceston native has enjoyed a meteoric rise over the last few years, starting with back to back Under 19 World Championship victories in 2011 and 2012. Consecutive national titles followed in the team pursuit, in 2014 and 2015.
These successes were the followed by winning the Omnium event at the Oceania Championships in October last year. Georgia then joined her Australian teammates at the World Championships in London, where a fourth place finish secured their qualification to the Rio games.
On the back of her strong Olympic debut, the 21 year old Georgia is already eyeing the 2017 World Championships in April. Beyond that, the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast will be a priority for Georgia and everyone at Cycling Australia.
