Kerri Pottharst is without question, one of Australia’s most popular female sporting personalities and is renowned for being one of the fiercest competitors in the world of Volleyball. She is Australia’s most decorated Indoor and Beach Volleyball player, having represented her country for an incredible 22 years and remains the only Australian woman to have played professionally in the world’s most prestigious A1 Italian Indoor Volleyball league. In 1992 a serious knee injury should have ended her career, but in her typical no-nonsense style she recovered late in 1993, changed her goals to Beach Volleyball and then went on to compete in 3 Olympics and win two Olympic medals. One of those was Bronze at the Atlanta Olympics and then the Gold that everybody remembers so well, at Bondi Beach during the Sydney 2000 Games. In addition to her incredible sporting achievements, she is a wife, a mum, a speaker, a coach, an author and an entrepreneur. Kerri’s vision is to continue to inspire and motivate through her warm and personal keynote presentations and her fun, team-building corporate days on the beach.
