Every life has story to tell – Emma Carney

In the next of our series, ‘every life has a story to tell’ Chapter House proudly presents 3 x World Champion Triathlete, Emma Carney.

Troy met Emma in 2009 during a charity cycling event in Tasmania; I was volunteering as a support team member. Emma inspired me to get healthy and get on a bike, a few years later I was riding with Emma on a regular Saturday morning 205km loop we named the 4k’s – Kew to Kinglake, to Kallista to Keysborough return.

Emma came into Chapter House to talk about the early years and how sport became a lifelong passion, to her own near-death experience suffering a cardiac arrest. Emma also opens up about her sister Jane’s short battle with cancer and impact this has made on her life today.

Thank you for sharing your story, Emma.
