Cheer on the athletes kicking goals for women’s sport. Olympic rugby gold medalist Chloe Dalton (Girls Don’t Play Sport), Australia’s most decorated cycling Olympian Anna Meares, and world champion pro-athlete Jana Pittman (Enough) chat with host Tracey Holmes.


Chloe Dalton is one of Australia’s few triple sport elite athletes – initially playing basketball in the WNBL with the Sydney Flames, before transitioning to rugby 7s. At the Rio 2016 Olympics, Chloe won gold with the Australian 7s team. She then crossed codes again to Aussie rules, debuting for Carlton in 2019. During a 2020 lockdown, Chloe created The Female Athlete Project to address gender inequalities within the sports media space. Chloe is currently playing AFLW with GWS.

Anna Meares is Australia’s most successful track cyclist after having won 11 World Championships and six Olympic Medals including two gold over a 14-year illustrious cycling career. She is the only Australian to win individual medals at four consecutive Olympic Games. Anna made her debut at Athens in 2004 where she won gold in the 500m Time Trial and bronze in the sprint. Four years later she won silver in the sprint at Beijing 2008, followed by sprint gold in London in 2012, where she also won bronze in the team sprint before finishing her storied career with bronze in the Keirin in Rio 2016. With extensive Olympic success Anna has been appointed the Chef de Mission for the Australian Olympic Team

Two-time World Champion and four-time Commonwealth Champion, Jana Pittman was the first woman to represent Australia in both a summer (2000, 2004) and winter (2014) Olympic Games. Off the track, Jana completed a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery at Western Sydney University in 2019 (First Class Honours/university medal) and is now a junior doctor in women’s health. She completed a Masters of Reproductive Medicine at The University of NSW Sydney in 2020 and has initiated her PhD in Obstetrics focusing on aspects of uterus transplantation. This busy woman is also a proud mum to six children. In her book, Enough, Jana writes just as she speaks, making her path to self-acceptance relatable for all.
