Emma is the daughter of Ann Ivory, an HR Consultant, and Ed Ganja, a PHD Chemist. She also has two siblings, Abby and Rhys (a diver as well). Emma began diving when she was 9 after seeing Laura Wilkinson win the gold medal in the 2000 Olympics. The two began training at the same facility, and are now close friends. During competitions, Emma likes to listen to music and dance around to keep loose. Her favorite dives are 107B on 3-meter as well as 5253B on 10-meter. Her favorite food is sushi and when she is not training, Emma enjoys football, basketball, gymnastics and ESPN in general. She’s a huge sports nut.
