About Alice

Alice Ingley started archery at just 12 years of age after wanting to play a sport alongside her brothers. She made her national debut at the 2007 Australian Junior National Championships and in 2008 was selected for a scholarship at the Australian Institute of Sport, where she trained for two years.

Alice got her first taste of international competition at the 2009 Australian Youth Olympic Festival in Sydney where she earned three medals. She then went on to shoot at the 2009 Turkey World Cup as a 16-year-old rookie. At the 2009 Australian Nationals Alice finished in second place.

She was the only female archer for the first Youth Olympic Games in 2010, where she finished in ninth place individually and fifth in the team event alongside Ben Nott. Following her debut Youth Olympics, Alice was selected to represent Australia at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi.

It was a packed year of competition in 2011 for Alice, posting positive results at the World University Games in China and the World Archery Youth Championships in Poland.

At the 2012 Olympic Games nomination shoot Alice finished second with a score of 2548, and was subsequently named as the reserve for the London Olympics in 2012.

In 2014, Alice took some time away from the sport to recover from a shoulder injury ahead of her Rio 2016 campaign. She went on to win the Australian Open title in 2014 and 2016, before making her Olympic debut at the 2016 Olympic Games. As the sole Australian women competing in Archery at the 2016 Games, Alice finished her event in 17th place.

At the 2021 Australian Open Championships she finished second in the women's open recurve with a score of 618, and at the 2021 Olympic Selection Trial she claimed the only Australian Olympic quota spot for women's archery after winning with a score of 638.

Once in Tokyo Alice was 57th in the individual ranking rounds, then progressed to a matchup with Ksenia Perova (ROC) with a chance at the round of 16 before being eliminated.

She also took to the Olympic mixed team competition with Taylor Worth where the pair finished 25th.
