Rebel is a 5’78” 139 lb equestrian from Hunter Valley, New South Wales, Australia. She is 27 years old, single and has been riding horses since “before I could walk”. She has been competing since she was three years old. She excels in the cross-country segment of the equestrian events.
Rebel was chosen for reasons similar to Anastasia yesterday. Australia in the #1 ranked equestrian team on the country so she has an excellent medal chance. Rebel, is part of a little controversy, having appeared in “Athens Dream” , a photo album tribute to Australian athletes featuring nude photos of over 30 Aussie stars. And how can you not have a female named “Rebel”?
Rebel has competed since the age of three and has represented Australia in America twice and also New Zealand as a member of the Trans Tasman Team in 2003. Rebel is considered a rising star in equestrian and locked down her Olympic spot by winning the Sydney International Three Day Event this June.
Her international placings include:
2004 CCN Sydney Athens format event: 1st 2004 Albury CIC: 2nd
2003 Adelaide CCI: 5th 2003 Taupo CCI: 9th
Rebel and the Olympics
This will be Rebel’s first Olympics but the Australians will be seeking a fourth consecutive Three Day Event gold medal. Rebel and her horse Oaklea Groover will be competing in both the individual and team equestrian events. Bravo will be broadcasting the equestrian 3-day team event today. Look for Rebel and Oaklea Groover.
