Kerri is a triple Olympian, with two Olympic medals and one of Australia's most decorated indoor and beach volleyball players.
Kerri's drive to success saw her take to the court to win bronze at the Atlanta Olympics, but it was her unparalleded strength, focus and determination that allowed her to transform her Bronze into Gold on Bondi Beach at the Sydney 2000 Olympics, in an overwhelming demonstration of power, courage, persistence and personal belief.
