Amy Taylor Introduction
Amy Elizabeth Taylor is a former football (soccer) player and current sports presenter with WIN Television in Australia.
Amy Taylor Career
Amy was a member of the Australian women's national team, known as "The Matildas", playing as a defender in over 20 international caps. Additionally, she played nearly 100 games for the Canberra Eclipse of the Australian Women's National Soccer League, and has played professionally in the United States for the W-League Hampton Roads Piranhas as well. She was first selected to the Australian women's national team in 1997, at the age of 17—just six years after she began playing the sport. Known as a tenacious defender and aggressive tackler, Taylor's style of play contributed to a number of injuries which ultimately ended her football career. After two reconstructive surgeries on her ankles following the Matildas' 2004 season, she began her television career.
Taylor became famous in her homeland in 2000 when she graced the cover of the Matildas' nude calendar, and she has since appeared in various magazines and print ads as a model. She has become one of WIN's most popular presenters since her television debut on a fishing program called Fishing Australia. She also hosted FOX8's 'Football Superstar' series in 2008.
