Early life and education
Felicity Abram was born with her twin brother, Geoff, on 16 August 1986 in Brisbane, Queensland, to Louisa and Bill Abram. She spent her early years outside on the family's 20,000-acre estate in Central Queensland.
Later on, she moved to Brisbane to attend Brisbane Girls Grammar School, where she completed most of the course, before finishing at St Peters Lutheran College under athletic scholarship in 2003.
Her twin brother, Geoff Abram, also became involved in sports, and was a professional Rugby player.
In 2003, at her very first ITU triathlon debut, Felicity Abram won the gold medal at the World Junior Championships, and in 2005, at the age of 18, she was admitted to the National Elite Team. After a year overshadowed by injuries, in 2008 she was the Number 1 in the ITU ranking, still the Australian triathlon federation did not appoint her as a member of the Olympic Team for Beijing. In the eight years from 2003 to 2010, Felicity Abram took part in 36 ITU competitions and achieved 20 top ten positions, among which 10 medals (3 gold medals).
