Kyah Simon, on her experiences of measurement as an Indigenous soccer player and Western Sydney Wanderers’ star striker.
Measurement has played a pivotal role in Kyah's career, for good and bad. An inch to the left means a winning goal, an inch to the right is a devastating loss. These inches, millimetres and seconds make the difference between a mistimed tackle, a pass too slow, or a painful injury and a year out of the game that she loves. Kyah Simon is a star striker for the Westfield Matildas and Western Sydney Wanderers FC, and recently returned from a successful season with the Boston Breakers (USA).
