Water skiingEdit

Coming from a water skiing family, her father Peter won the Australian title eleven times and sister Sarah placed second at the 2007 World Championships. She first learnt to ski at the age of four and started racing when she was nine years old. In 2003, she placed second in the Junior Division and at the next World Championships in 2005 she won the women's division title in the F2 class. In 2006, she won the Australian Speed Championships (U/19) and the Australian Marathon Champs (U/19). She then finished third at the 2007 World Championship in May in the Formula 1 Division.[4] She retired shortly from racing after her father's death in 2008.[5] In 2009 Lauryn returned to racing placing third at the 2009 World Championships, and 7th in the 2011 World Championships after suffering a big fall in the third race.

Professional boxing careerEdit

Turning professional in 2010, she went 2–0–1 with 1 knockout that year and in 2011 she would suffer two split decision losses.

On 13 July 2012, she defeated Kiangsak Sithsaithong (then 9–0–0 4KO) by a 5th-round TKO to win the World Boxing Foundation women's super featherweight title, improving her record to 3–2–1 2 knockouts.[6]

The match was widely criticised within the boxing media. Commentators pointed out that Eagle had not fought more than 6 rounds in her career, and had not won a fight since 2010.[7] It was also noted that Sithsaithong's record was almost entirely against debut fighters[8] in Thai villages.[9]

In September 2012, she did a promotional fight against Fox FM radio joc Matt Tilley in a 'Champ vs Chump' promotion.[10] Eagle won the three round fight by a TKO in the third round.[11] Two days later Eagle fought New Zealand's Nicki Bigwood winning in a unanimous decision in a six-round bout on as an undercard to former professional rugby league footballer Solomon Haumono's fight.[12]

On January 30, 2013 she won the vacant Australia female lightweight title beating Nadine Brown on points at the Sydney Entertainment Centre.

Modeling and mediaEdit

Eagle also has a keen interest in modeling. In 2005, she competed in Miss Teen Australia in Darwin and won the title along with Miss Congeniality. She then went to Costa Rica in Central America and competed in Miss Teen International and made a clean sweep, winning Miss Teen International, along with Most Photogenic, Miss Congeniality and Best Silhouette.[citation needed]

In 2006, she won the FHM Lara Croft Challenge involved physical challenges of shooting, running, ropes, ladders, 4-wheel driving and swimming.[citation needed]

She starred in the second season of the Celebrity Apprentice Australia where she lasted until the final episode where she finished fourth.[citation needed]

In the August edition of MAXIM magazine, Eagle featured on the front cover and a photo shoot.[13]

Personal lifeEdit

In March 2008, Eagle's father Peter, a 10-time Australian water-skiing champion, died when his speedboat flipped and crashed.[14]

On 19 May 2013, Eagle was arrested at Northies Cronulla Hotel and charged with failing to leave premises when requested.[15] She had recently split with her boyfriend, rugby league player Todd Carney.[16]

On 9 January 2014, she was ordered by the courts to leave her Mother alone after a dispute over a family dog.[17]

On January 30, 2018 she was convicted of drug driving, fined $600 and banned from driving for six months. The magistrate rejected an application to record no conviction, noting her poor traffic record.[18]
