TACKLING people dressed in lingerie may sound like fun, but for diesel fitter Kody House it's serious business.    

The 23-year-old Gladstone woman and former St Ursula's College student has gone on to do great things in lingerie football, making a name for herself in the first-ever Australian Legends Football League (LFL) last year.  

This blonde beauty is a passionate athlete who said she had always enjoyed sport since she was young.  

"(I've played) (basketball, touch, netball, soccer, athletics), and started going to the gym in high school," Kody said.

"However, the past few years is when I have been really dedicated to eating healthy and training as I moved from my home town to Brisbane to play soccer in the Brisbane Premier League and also play AFL in the Brisbane Women's League."  

Kody said she was contacted by a friend from Yeppoon to try out for the sport and made the Queensland team.  

No longer playing soccer or AFL and dedicating her time solely to LFL, Kody said she was happy to be acknowledged for her skills.  

"I've played for other sports and you don't get that much recognition for your abilities," she said.   

"Being on TV was so exciting…and it's been getting a good response here so far, we had 6000 people turn up to one of the games in Melbourne recently."  

One of the captains playing tight end and linebacker positions in the game, which is based on America's grid iron sport, Kody said she hoped to go further in the sport and play overseas.  

"I eventually want to play in America and Canada or even in Europe when the new league starts in upcoming years," she said.   

"It's so full-on, I put in a lot of effort every day, aside from our training sessions I do my own, so I don't really get that much spare time."  

Kody said wearing lingerie while playing didn't faze her, and it was no different from other sports.  

"I did a bit of body building and you wear a similar outfit for that.   

"It (LFL) has been re-branded now and we are all people who have played sport before, we're normal athletes who want to be recognised for our skills and hard work," she said.
