Another Triumphant Women in Sport Breakfast

Abstract

With over 400 people braving the early morning traffic (made even more chaotic by the SE Freeway closure), the ACHPER QLD Women in Sport Breakfast 2006 has demonstrated the ever-growing community demand for events that showcase women’s achievements in sport, fitness and recreation. Eloquently hosted by Vicki Wilson, the breakfast canvassed the talents and achievements of Sara Carrigan, Jess Roberts, Kelly McKellar-Nathan and Emma Snowsill.

The speakers were not the only champions in the room, with 1956 Olympic Gold Medallist in 100m relay, Norma Fleming, 1999 Australian Judo Champion and Atlanta Olympian Natalie Galea, and current world record holder for 100m Butterfly, Jessica Schipper, in the audience. The proceedings were opened with an excellent display of dance funk and aerobics by Kelsy and the Club Funk dancers, demonstrating the diversity and inclusivity of ‘sports performance’.
