Kerri Pottharst is Australia's most decorated Indoor and Beach Volleyball player, having represented her country for an incredible 20 years. When Kerri took up volleyball at the age of 15, she hadn't yet dreamed of becoming an Olympic champion. In 1992 a sickening knee injury should have ended her career, but in her typical no-nonsense style, Kerri recovered late in 1993, changed her goals to Beach Volleyball and then went on to compete in 3 Olympic Games and win two Olympic medals - Bronze at Atlanta and then the memorable Gold against Brazil during the Sydney 2000 Games at Bondi. Renowned for being one of the fiercest competitors in the world of Volleyball, Kerri is now also known for being a successful inspirational speaker and presenter, entrepreneur, and published author.
After retiring from international level competition, Kerri has been sharing her Gold Medal Excellence strategies to inspire people on their own journey to success. She motivates and inspires people to overcome their fears and self-doubts, to set goals and to push through the barriers to achieve them. An expert at reinventing herself time and time again, Kerri can relate to the constant need to deal with a changing world to stay successful and reach even greater goals.
Kerri produced a series for Cuppa called The Athlete Story where she interviewed past Olympians on their memories of the Olympics when the Tokyo Olympics was cancelled because of the worldwide pandemic.
