About

Katey is an Olympic, World Champion and Hall of Fame cyclist, who achieved success at the highest level of the sport, both on the road and on the track.

She provides commentary and hosting for live television at major events, including the the Olympics, Commonwealth Games, World Championship, and Tour De France, and hosts Ausstralia's only weekly cycling podcast, The Wheelhouse.

Katey continues to work closely with grass roots and elite sport, as a board and committee member at various sporting organisations, and as a co-owner of Chicks Who Ride Bikes, a women's cycling community app which connects and empowers women on their cycling journey.

In 2021 Katey co-authored an Independent Panel Report into the treatment of Women and Girls in Swimming in Australia. The Independent Panel was tasked with a solution-focussed inquiry to understand issues facing participants in swimming within a performance environment. A total of 46 recommendations were identified by the Independent Panel, with Swimming Australia committed to addressing all 46 recommendations.
