Amber Bourke began holding her breath as a synchonised swimmer on the Australian national team before graduating to freediving in 2011. Since discovering the sport she has set 9 new Australian freediving records.

In 2013 Amber was awarded a bronze medal at the Belgrade pool world championships after swimming 164m without fins which was greater than the current world record at the time.

In 2017 Amber successfully completed a dive without fins to -68m, the third deepest dive without fins by a woman, ever. Amber Bourke is the current women's Australian pool and depth freediving champion and an SSI freediving instructor trainer.
