2nd in the 10m Platform (2005)

She was selected for the Atlanta Olympics in 1996 and placed 19th despite being only 16 years of age.

She has always been afraid of heights and had to overcome her fears to conquer the 10m Platform.

Tourky was an elite gymnast for five years and spent three months with the AIS Gymnastics Program in Canberra before trying diving.

In 2003, she became the first diver to win gold at each of the CAN-AM-MEX FINA Diving Grand Prix series when she won the 10m Platform and the 10m Synchronised Platform in Canada, America and Mexico.

She was also named 2003 Sydney University Sports Woman of the Year and also won the Magpie Wests Ashfield Award.
