Des'ree Barnes


You are your only limit

After picking up her brothers bike at the age of three, Des’ree taught herself to ride unaided around the families back yard determined to ride on a BMX Track. From that day in 2005 Des’ree has been riding, training and racing, looking to make her own story for the history books.

In 2009 the UCI BMX World Championships were held in Adelaide South Australia, Des’ree’s home town at the time where She won her first Challenge Class World Title at the age of six. During this event Des’ree was given the name ‘Desi-Racer’ by the commentator, a name that has stuck and becoming well known in the BMX World. Since 2009, on a family promise, Des’ree has followed the World Championships across the globe achieving an additional Four World Titles.

Des’ree moved from Adelaide to Redland Bay Queensland when she was Seven (2010) with her family which was a blessing in disguise presenting some amazing tracks to ride and now with a World Class BMX Supercross facility at Sleeman Sport Complex. Sleeman SX Track is frequented and loved by Desi and just twenty minutes from home allowing her to hone her skills on one of the most technical tracks in the world

Des’ree Barnes is a seriously competitive individual and has been from a very young age whether riding her bike, running or just getting to the door in front of the next person. Although Des’ree has learnt how to win in her BMX career thus far, she also knows what it’s like to be beaten, a key element to the growth of any successful athlete.

Since 2010 Des’ree has worked with her strength and condition coach learning the movements and skills to build a strong foundation as she grows. With the commitment to work hard both on and off the track, Des’ree is striving to become the best possible athlete and BMX Racer she can be, ready to explode into the Junior Elite ranks and Supercross World Cup Series in 2019. 

In addition to Des'ree's impressive BMX results she has also represented Australia for Olympic weightlifting at the Oceania Championships in 2017 placing 2nd Overall.

Des'ree is currently ranked 2nd in Australia for Olympic weightlifting in the 53kg category.

There is a fire that burns deep within ‘Desi-Racer’ that cannot be doused, her results, motivation and future goals are testament to this.

Des'ee is focussed on the following goals for 2018 :

  • Medal at the Oceania Championships for Olympic weightlifting

Des'ree has a number of future goals which include :

  • Compete at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics in BMX

The first breakthrough in the sport was in 2012, when at the age of 10 Alexandra qualified to her first “Nationals” where she ended up on the podium, taking her first National Title in individual apparatus amongst Level 7 International stream.

The following year Alexandra made her first International debut, taking on the Spanish International Tournament “Vitry Cup” run by Olympic bronze medallist and World Champion Olena Vitrichenko.

Year by year moving through levels and showing consistency and dedication Alexandra earned herself a reputation and a name as a hard working and very talented athlete with a passion for the sport and true sportsmanship.

These qualities didn’t come out of nowhere. Alexandra grew up in a family with high regards for sport. Her family competed in: track and field (grandmother), volleyball (grandfather – still plays and coaches), mother (Ballroom and Latin dancer – former NZ champion).

In 2018 Alexandra has reached the uppermost level in her sport turning Senior International. The year started with her successful qualification for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games at the inaugural RG (rhythmic gymnastics) Australia Cup FIG (international gymnastics federation authorized event). At the Australia Cup Alexandra took 2 gold, 1 silver and 1 bronze medal, qualifying for the Commonwealth Games. The Commonwealth Games results showed that Alexandra was deservedly in the Team. She was the youngest member of Australian Gymnastics Team and became the youngest Rhythmic Gymnast in 20 years to win an individual medal at the event. With 2 bronze medals and tons of experience Alexandra was ready for more. 2 Weeks after the Commonwealth Games – she made her first World Cup debut, taking on 3 World Cups in a row and earning her first world ranking points.

Upon her return from the World Cup tour Alexandra took on the Australian Championship. Her first National in Senior International Level resulted in the 2018 All Around Championship Title and 3 more individual apparatus titles, ranking Alexandra #1 in Australia.

Chelsea Pitman


Chelsea Pitman


Obstacles only become visible when we lose sight of our goals

Chelsea is Sydney born but has had an extensive career that has seen her play in 3 different countries and many different cities. Pitman’s career began in New South Wales, representing the state at underage national championships before moving to the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra where she was noticed by national head coach Norma Plummer.

In 2010, she was signed by New Zealand ANZ Championship franchise the Canterbury Tactix. However, in round 6 against the Northern Mystics, she suffered an ACL injury that ended her season.

After a successful ACL rehabilitation, she joined the Queensland Firebirds in 2011. Significant improvement throughout the season resulted in Pitman becoming the starting wing attack and helping the Firebirds win the ANZ Championship in an undefeated season. Her breakthrough season was capped off with selection in the Australian Netball Diamonds team for the 2011 World Netball Championships in Singapore, where Australia retained the title. Pitman made her international debut against the Silver Ferns during a series of international matches prior to the 2011 World Netball Championships in Singapore. During the world championships, she featured regularly at wing attack in her first major international tournament. In the gold medal match against New Zealand, she was brought onto wing attack at half time when the Diamonds were six goals down and helped the Diamonds draw level at the end of regulation time to send the game into extra time. The Diamonds went onto win the match 58-57 and claim the world championship with Pitman playing a major role in the Diamond's comeback. She represented the Australian Diamonds throughout 2012 during the Quad Series against South Africa, New Zealand and England. However, she was unable to make a return to the national squad after this series.

In 2013, Pitman was part of the Firebirds team who made it to the ANZ Championship Grand Final for the second time in 3 years where they were defeated by the Adelaide Thunderbirds 50-48. At the conclusion of the season, she and Firebirds teammate Natalie Medhurst, announced that they had signed with the West Coast Fever for the 2014 season.

Towards the end of the 2014, Pitman announced that she would take the following season (2015) off from the ANZ Championship to consider her netball future. In July 2014, she signed a one-year contract with Netball Superleague side Manchester Thunder for the 2015 season in England. For the 2016 season, she returned to play in the ANZ Championship, signing for New Zealand side Central Pulse. After the dissolution of the ANZ Championship in July 2016, Pitman signed with the Adelaide Thunderbirds for the 2017 Suncorp Super Netball season. Pitman starred for the Thunderbirds during their 2017 campaign and was ultimately named the 2017 Club Champion after a highly successful season.

In 2017 Pitman was selected into the England National Netball Team through her England-born father. She later made her international debut for England against South Africa in the 2017 January Quad Series, and helped them claim two historic wins over the New Zealand Silver Ferns in 2017. And was an integral part in the success the England Roses had in claiming Gold at the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast.

I’d rather be the villain than the victim

 

I was born in New Zealand before moving to Australia in 1999 with my family. Since moving to Australia I became involved in local swim clubs and did the occasional school cross country or athletes carnival. By the time I was 14, my enjoyment in pure swimming was starting to waver, so when a family friend suggested I give the local duathlon a go, I jumped at the chance. Winning the 500m run-5k bike- 500m run, whilst looking back, seems so small, actually started my love affair with the sport. The same family friend decided I had talent, so offered to take me to the iconic Nepean Triathlon for the Junior event. Here, I was introduced to the complexities of transition and the still-relevant advice- "Know where your bike is!".

After crying my way through my first ever 8k training ride the day before, I took on the 125m-10k-1.25k course and loved every minute of it and even came away with a win. This win meant I was offered a place in the Sydney Junior Triathlon Academy run by Mick Delamotte and Peter Clifford, who for the next couple of years, along with the guidance of home coach, Richard Hobson and, until I joined the newly formed triathlon squad in the Western Region Academy of Sport with Nancy Haslop, introduced and encouraged me in the NSW Junior Series. After eventually winning the series I was upgraded to the TriNSW squad, run by Mick Maroney and John Hickey. Thanks to them, I got involved in the NSW Pro-Tour series and began my time in the Australian Junior Series. 

After a year or two at this level I finally finished school and knew it was now time to decide whether to take this sport on as a profession. 

In 2011 I achieved an Australian Junior Championship title, Junior European Cup wins, top 10 finishes at World Cups and Continental Cup podiums as well as travelling overseas to the Basque Country in northern Spain for 5 months of the year training . I officially became a member of the NSW Institute of Sport in 2011.

In 2012 I showed progress as a junior racer as I achieved another Junior World Championship team, podium at elite Continental Cups and achieved top 10s at World Cup racing.

2013 marked my first year as an U/23 and elite athlete, where I earnt a start in the World Triathlon Series in Stockholm, gained my first World Cup Podium in Palamos and claimed my first Elite European Conti Cup victory in Cremona.

2014 and 2015 were hampered by injury, but I was able to race my second World Series in Auckland, gain a top 5 finish at the Chendgu World Cup and finish 2nd in my first Div 1, German Bundesliga race in Kraichgau and win numerous Basque Triathlon Races in Northern Spain.

In 2016 I came back from an another injury in March to finish 6th in my first ITU European Cup in 2 years and later in the year take the win in the Oceania Cup in Tahiti. I was also welcomed into the Taranaki Toa whanau, a New Zealand based training group supporting Maori in triathlon and encouraging a healthy lifestyle in the community.

In 2017 I started with Elotik Pro Triathlon, coached by Danielle Stefano. I returned to top level racing, competing in two WTS events on the Gold Coast and in Leeds, where I achieved a top 25 performance in the Commonwealth Games qualification race on the Gold Coast. I also competed in multiple World Cup Events including New Plymouth, Mooloolaba and Madrid, finishing top 20 in all 3. I also achieved a Premium European Cup podium in Holten.

This season, I won the Victorian Elite State Series, was 3rd at the Elite Oceania Olympic Distance Championships, achieved three top 10's at Chengdu World Cup, Astana World Cup and Tiszi World Cup and won race 1 of the Triathlon Bundesliga Series in Kraichgau, as well as earning two Bronze medals in the Mixed Team Relay formats at the British Mixed Relay Cup and Major League Triathlon Series.

 Next season, I look at building into more WTS races and aiming for Tokyo 2020 under the guidance of Danielle Stefano.

The harder you work, the luckier you get

I started playing hockey when I was 4/5 years old in North Queensland.

I was then selected by the QAS to move to Brisbane after school in 2013 to train.

Two years later I was very fortunate to be selected to move to Perth and to start training with the Hockeyroos squad.

I made my Australian debut in 2015 but unfortunately tore my ACL at the end of the year which ruled me out for the whole of 2016. 

I am now fully recovered and looking forward to playing my best hockey ever with the Australian team.

My short term goals for the coming year are to medal with the team at the World Cup in London in 2018.

My focus will then be on the Olympics in Tokyo in 2020.

My family has been my biggest support over the years and I’m very lucky to have them.

If it was easy anyone could do it

My name is Kate Shimmin and I am a member of the Adelaide Thunderbirds and the Australian Fast 5 team.

I am from South Australia and grew up in the Northern Suburbs of Adelaide.

I played for the Adelaide Thunderbirds from 2011 - 2016 winning the premiership in 2013.

I also played one season in 2017 with the Queensland Firebirds.

I am now back in my hometown playing for the Adelaide Thunderbirds in season 2018.

I grew up playing netball with my sister at the Parafield Gardens Recreational centre before moving onto Priceline Stadium and playing for the Contax netball club.

Whilst playing for Contax I was also in the development squad at the South Australian Institute of Sport for Volleyball, however as my netball progressed I was then offered a scholarship for netball at SASI and had to choose between volleyball and netball and I happily chose netball.

From 2008-2009 I was a scholarship holder for netball at SASI and there I developed my skills whilst being coached by Marg Angove.

In 2010 after I graduated from high school I moved to Canberra to the Australian institute of sport for a year when I was given an opportunity to further develop my skills and become exposed to what it really meant to be an elite athlete. After a year in Canberra I was then offered to come back home and be a part of the Adelaide Thunderbirds and I have not looked back since. 

During my time at the AIS and at the Thunderbirds I have also been in the Australian 21/U team where I represented my country in New Zealand, Jamaica, Malaysia, South Africa and at the World Youth Cup in Glasgow where I was Vice Captain.

In the years 2013-2015 I also represented Australia in the Fast 5 competition in New Zealand where we were runners up.

While doing all of this I have been studying to be a teacher at the University of Adelaide whilst working part time at Joggers World.

My passion is not only playing netball but it is also giving back to my community and working with children. I am currently an ambassador for the Salisbury council  where I promote netball and run netball clinics for children living in the Salisbury council area.

I am also the head coach for the Salisbury Academy netball program which gives opportunity and exposure to girls who want to progress and further develop their netball skills. 

I believe that travel is so important to the development of a person and I love to travel to different parts of the world and have been so lucky to have been able to combine my two passions of netball and travel. 

I love promoting the great sport of netball and being a positive role model to the community by encouraging healthy habits, mindfulness and hard work.

My main goal for 2018 is to win the National Netball League (NNL) with my  team ..The Adelaide Thunderbirds !!!
