Ellyse Perry - My Perfect Sunday

At only 23 years of age, Ellyse Perry could be the most prolific Australian sportswoman in recent memory.

When she was 16, the Sydney-born athlete made her debut for the Australian cricket team and soccer team. This incredible effort made Ellyse the first Australian – male or female – to represent the country in both sports.

In the seven years since her debut, Ellyse has gone on to do more amazing things – playing in the World Cups and other major national and international competitions for both cricket and soccer.

This is how the mega-talented Ellyse would spend her perfect weekend.

1. What are you eating?

I’m starting the day with some delicious Bircher Muesli and a green tea at Three Blue Ducks in Bronte, one of my favourite places to eat.

2. What are you listening to?

At the moment I’m really enjoying Asgeir's album, The Silence. It’s nice and chilled out for a Sunday.

3. What are you doing?

After brekky in Bronte I’m going for a walk along the coastline followed by a swim at the beach.

4. What are you wearing?

Something relaxed for a casual Sunday, usually just shorts and a t-shirt with my swimmers underneath.

5. What did you do last night?

I had some friends and family over for dinner and went to a gig.
