Olympic champion Kerri Pottharst OAM has been named the newest Minerva Legend by Minerva Network. Kerri's legacy in Australian sports history is cemented by her pivotal role alongside Natalie Cook as the Dreamachine, winning gold in Beach Volleyball at the Sydney 2000 Olympics. Her contributions to the sport extend beyond the sands of Bondi Beach, resonating through her inspiring speaking engagements, coaching endeavours, and thought leadership in high-performance domains.
The growth of the Minerva Network in the Australian Capital Territory reflects a positive shift towards greater gender equality and diversity in leadership roles. By providing mentorship, networking events and advocacy the increased visibility and success of women athletes in the ACT is a testament to the positive impact of the Minerva Network.
Sport is no longer just sport. It’s a commercial industry. For Australian female athletes, their on-field success is not adequately recognised or commercialised off the field.
Through collaboration, sponsorship, mentorship and a whole lot of heart, this network of leading Australian businesswomen is dedicated to ensuring our professional women in sport can soar.
