Eva Kierath

                                                             
      

After numerous successes as a Junior athlete, Kierath has been moving up with Trampolining ranks with humility and poise.

After winning the World Age Group Competition in 2011, Kierath was selected onto her first Senior World Championship team in 2015, where she placed 63rd in the event held in Odense, Denmark.

In 2016 she represented Australia at the Shanghai World Cup in China, and finished as the highest ranked female Aussie of the competition, placing 18th.  She also partnered with Leanne Van Rensburg in the Synchronised competition to place 10th.

Eva has nominated herself to represent Australia at the 2017 Trampoline World Championships later this year in Bulgaria.
