With the AFLW kicking off this week, we spoke to Kaitlyn Ashmore about all things footy. The Brisbane Lions player starred in our Make An Impact campaign, putting our best-ever high performance sports bra to the test. Find out her plans for the season & how she rated our High Impact Sports Bra.
WHEN SHE FIRST STARTED PLAYING AFL:
“I got into it in high school. No one really knew how to play; you’d just run to wherever the ball was and chase it around. I joined a team when I was 18, one of the teacher’s friends came and watched and said there was a women’s team in Ballarat. Then I moved to a team in Melbourne because I made the Academy side and it’s just been growing ever since then.”
ON THE MOMENT SHE RAN ONTO THE FIELD FOR THE FIRST TELEVISED AFLW GAME:
“I think it was mostly special for me because it was in Melbourne so I had all my family come and watch. To be one of the first girls to put on the Brisbane Lions jersey with number 10 on the back, that was pretty special. I couldn’t have hoped for a better game in front of my family in that first match. We took out the win as well which was amazing.”
HOW SHE PLANS TO MAKE AN IMPACT THIS SEASON:
“I just plan to make an impact both on and off the field. Obviously with my teammates, I want to make an impact and be better than what I was last year and we go one better than last year.
“Off the field, I want to make an impact on one of the little girl’s lives, I love making their day and seeing them smile is amazing.”
HOW SHE RATED OUR HIGH IMPACT SPORTS BRA:
“It is so comfy, it doesn’t feel like you’re wearing a bra – you know how some bras are a bit stiff, it’s really comfortable. It’s got really good support!”
ON THE WOMEN WHO INSPIRE HER:
“I love strong, confident women. So obviously sporting heroes, they’re amazing at what they do. No one really sees what they do behind the TV, all their training, dedication and passion – I just love that.”
