She has eponymous skills on BB and FX: triple turn in tuckstand (wolfturn). 

“Missing Lauren Mitchell right about now.”


“I’m Australian, but I root for the USA team, I know most of their names, strengths and weaknesses, I make predictions of who will make world or Olympic teams. I follow juniors and hope they don’t burn out. I cheer for them when their flag goes up. But recently read about Lauren Mitchell, and I started to miss not being able to cheer for my own country, I just wish one of them would make worlds.”
