Amalie Iuel was born in Denmark to a Danish mother and a Danish-Norwegian father; the family moved to Norway when she was two, and she spent most of her childhood there. The Iuels left Norway when Amalie was twelve due to the demands of her father's job with Telenor; they moved first to Namibia, and later Pakistan, the United Arab Emirates and Thailand. Iuel took up track and field as a young girl in Norway, but did not pursue it seriously before her time in Thailand at the International School Bangkok (ISB); her coach there, Ugo Costessi, introduced her to the 400 metres hurdles. After high school, she moved to the United States and became a student-athlete at the University of Southern California (USC).
During the 2015 season (her sophomore year at USC) Iuel set both Danish and Norwegian under-23 records in the women's 400 metres hurdles, running 55.92 as a Dane and 56.36 as a Norwegian. She placed seventh at the 2015 NCAA championships in 56.99. She received Norwegian citizenship and switched her athletic allegiance from Denmark to Norway in June 2015, shortly before the 2015 European U23 Championships where she placed fifth as a Norwegian in her first international championship meet. She represented Norway in the 400 metres hurdles at the 2015 World Championships in Athletics in Beijing, China, but was eliminated in the first round.
