Fresh back from Rio after winning gold in the first ever Paratriathlon at the Paralympics, Katie talks about her own road to Rio as well as challenges she has faced in her professional career.
Katie was born with impaired hearing and two years ago was told she had Usher syndrome and was going to go blind. The next day she was on the phone to Triathlon Australia to enquire about competing as a vision impaired athlete. A lot of hard work later Katie has brought home gold.
Katie has an amazing attitude and outlook on life and is the embodiment of the Achievement Style. Katie continues to give back to the community by promoting healthier lifestyles. She has set up fun runs around the country and is currently creating the 'Sport Access Foundation', which serves to remove barriers for children with a disability to play sport.
