Lauryn Eagle: Exceptionally Talented and Accomplished Australian
Professional Boxer and Water Skiing Champion Reveals her Mantra of Success
"Conquer you Fears"
Eagle is an Australian professional boxer and water skiing champion. She was on
The Celebrity Apprentice Australia and is a former Miss Teen International 2004.
Coming from a water skiing family, her father Peter won the Australian title
eleven times and sister Sarah placed second at the 2007 World Championships. She
first learnt to ski at the age of four and started racing when she was nine
years old. In 2003, she placed second in the Junior Division, and at the 2005
World Championships she won the women’s division title in the F2 class. In 2006,
she won the Australian Speed Championships (U/19) and the Australian Marathon
Champs (U/19). She then reached third place in the world rankings at the 2007
World Championship in May in the Formula 1 Division.
After retiring from water skiing in 2008, Lauryn took up a career as a
professional boxer in 2010. Lauryn fought the good fight as a boxer, determined
to rise above any knockouts. Her bouts in the ring saw her win the World Boxing
Foundation women’s super featherweight title in 2012, before bringing it closer
to home and claiming the Australian female lightweight title by beating Nadine
Brown in 2013. Lauryn also participated – and won – a number of promotional
fights – including one against Fox FM radio host Matt Tilley in a ‘Champ vs
Chump’ promotion; and another against New Zealand’s Nicki Bigwood, as an
undercard to former rugby league player Solomon Haumono’s fight.
Dedicated and driven, courageous and charismatic, Lauryn’s success doesn’t stop
at sport. She won Miss Teen Australia in 2005, before traveling to Costa Rica
and competing in Miss Teen International where she took home the title, along
with accolades for Most Photogenic, Miss Congeniality and Best Silhouette. Her
modeling ambitions later saw her grace the pages of a number of magazines
including Cosmopolitan, Maxim and FHM – where she won the Lara Croft Challenge
(involving physical tests such as shooting, running, ropes, ladders, 4-wheel
driving and swimming.)
In September 2012, she did a promotional fight against Fox FM radio joc Matt
Tilley in a 'Champ vs Chump' promotion. Eagle won the three round fight by a TKO
in the third round. Two days later Eagle fought New Zealand's Nicki Bigwood
winning in a unanimous decision in a six round bout on as an undercard to former
rugby league player Solomon Haumono's fight.
On January 30, 2013 she won the vacant Australia female lightweight title
beating Nadine Brown on points at the Sydney Entertainment Centre. Eagle also
has a keen interest in modelling. In 2005, she competed in Miss Teen Australia
in Darwin and won the title along with Miss Congeniality. She then went to Costa
Rica in Central America and competed in Miss Teen International and made a clean
sweep, winning Miss Teen International, along with Most Photogenic, Miss
Congeniality and Best Silhouette.
In 2006, she won the FHM Lara Croft Challenge involved physical challenges of
shooting, running, ropes, ladders, 4-wheel driving and swimming. She starred in
the second season of the Celebrity Apprentice Australia where she lasted until
the final episode where she finished fourth. In the August edition of MAXIM
magazine, Eagle featured on the front cover and a photo shoot.
With an established career as a model, world champion water skier and
professional boxer Lauryn pulls no punches about her passion for health and
fitness – And does it all with a side of glamour!
After completing a 6 month NIDA TV presenting course, Lauryn pursued work
through various TV and radio avenues – including Wide World of Sports, Sports
Tonight and Triple M’s Grill Team. And when the opportunity presented itself to
participate in 2012’s Celebrity Apprentice she jumped at the chance. Lauryn’s
hard work placed her in the fi nal four where she was the last female standing.
With her experience as an athlete and her knowledge of the body, fitness and
health, Lauryn went on to gain her qualifications as a personal trainer and
start Eagle Fitness in September 2013.
Lauryn Eagle is an exceptionally talented and accomplished Australian
professional boxer and water skiing champion. She also won Miss Teen
International, along with Most Photogenic, Miss Congeniality and Best Silhouette
in 2005. She is in conversation with Namita Nayyar President Women Fitness.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: You learnt to water skiing at the age of four and started
racing when you were nine years old, your father Peter who won the Australian
title eleven times and sister Sarah placed second at the 2007 World
Championships were your mentors. You reached the pinnacle of success by winning
World Championships in 2005 in the F2 class. In 2006, you also won the
Australian Speed Championships (U/19) and the Australian Marathon Champs (U/19).
What factors you consider were responsible that made you achieve that?
Ms. Lauryn Eagle: I attribute my Water Skiing success down to two main factors …
My families incredible support and direction AND to my personal will to be the
best at whatever I attempt. My friends call me fearless but in reality I love a
challenge and am a very determined woman.
