Come and meet Bianca Chatfield
Bianca was one of the youngest players ever to have debuted for the Australian Diamonds at the age of only 18. She made a name for herself on the court as one of the toughest defenders in the country and was soon recognised as one of the most respected leaders in women’s sport.
Some career highlights:
- Premiership Captain of Melbourne Vixens 2009, 2014
- Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist 2014, Silver Medallist 2006
- World Championship Gold Medal – 2007
- Melbourne Phoenix Premiership Player 2000, 2002, 2003, 2005
- Netball Victoria ‘Legend of the Game’
Since retiring from the sport in 2015, her career has grown from strength to strength. Bianca splits her time advocating for women in sport through media and educating on leadership and how to develop a high performance mindset to get the best out of yourself whether that be in the sporting or business worlds.
Bianca is a regular panellist on Fox Sports GAME DAY LIVE and the ABC’s Sideliners as well as a regular on SEN and Macquarie Sports Radio, and in 2016 launched her first book called Game On which seeks to empower women to find their passion, navigate through the fear of change, and nail down a game plan to make it happen.
Bianca, together with Victoria University Sport, has developed a High Performance Academy through which she provides high performance netball coaching to a group of young women who share the desire of playing netball an the elite level.
Come and meet Mack Horton
An Olympic gold medallist, World Championships medallist, and Commonwealth Games medallist, local Melbourne boy Mackenzie “Mack” Horton broke his first Australian-age swimming record at 13, and has continued to dominate and break records ever since.
He began his international career in 2012 where he won the 1500m freestyle event at the Pan Pacific Swimming Championships, but it was really Horton’s 2013 performance at the World Junior Championships in Dubai that brought him to the attention of the world. Horton dominated Dubai, taking out Gold in the 200m, 400m, 800m and 1500m Freestyle events as well as gold in the 4x100m Freestyle Relay.
His first senior appearance saw him receive a silver medal in the 1500m Freestyle as well as gold in the 4x200m Freestyle relay during the 2014 Commonwealth Games, and he has continued his stellar form ever since – including bringing home the gold in the 400m freestyle relay as part of the 2016 Rio Olympics team at age 20.
Some of Mack’s recent achievements include his outstanding performance at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games earlier this year, which saw him take out first place in the 400m Freestyle and in the 4x 200m Freestyle Relay; and also earn the silver medal in the 200m Freestyle and bronze in the 1500m Freestyle.
