Ellyse is a sporting gun! She was selected to play for Australia in cricket AND soccer when she was 16 years old. That's seriously record-breaking stuff. How often do you see a sportsperson playing for their country in two sports? 

In cricket, Ellyse is a bowler (she was the opening bowler when we won the Cricket World Cup in 2013), and in soccer, she's a defender. She scored the soccer Young Player of the Year Award in 2009!

That's just the tip of the ice-berg though, Ellyse needs a whole trophy room for all of her awards!
