Katrina Webb OAM's Biography

A successful athletic competing in the Paralympic Games, Commonwealth Games and World Athletic Championships, Katrina Webb is a true inspiration. Her outstanding career is recognized worldwide in areas of sport and business. Katrina is highly engaging and motivational speaker, delivering authentic and captivating presentations for her audiences.  

When Katrina was 18, on a netball scholarship at the Australian Institute of Sport, she discovered that a weakness on her right side was a mild case of Cerebral Palsy. Something she had known since birth, but because she was not sure what it was and it is not obvious, she found it easier to hide.  

With the discovery of her CP, Katrina realized that she was eligible to compete at the Paralympic Games. A difficult decision to make, Katrina decided to tackle her disability head on and take on the challenge.  

At her first Paralympic Games in Atlanta in 1996, Katrina won a Gold Medal in the 100m and 200m sprint and a Silver medal in the Long Jump. At the Sydney 2000 Paralympic Games Katrina had the honour of being the first torchbearer to enter the Olympic Stadium for the opening ceremony and went on to win Silver in the 100m and 400m sprint and a Bronze Medal in the 200m sprint.  

At the Athens Paralympic Games in 2004, Katrina won another Gold medal for the 400m sprint and set a new Paralympic Record. Katrina's success on the track has made her one of Australia's top performing Paralympic athletes.  

Now one of Katrina's biggest rewards in her life has been to learn how to overcome her disability, love her uniqueness and celebrate her difference. With her natural positive attitude, a love for new challenges and excellent people skills, off the track Katrina is the Director of her own business Silver 2 Gold. As a qualified physiotherapist and a person that knows how to achieve gold medal results more than once, her business specializes in 'Turning silver to Gold' and improving the performance and health of organizations, teams and individuals through keynote speaking, team building events and corporate health and wellbeing programs.  

Katrina's success as an athlete and as a business woman has been recognised internationally, when she was one of four athletes selected from around the world to present at the closing ceremony of the United Nations International Year of Sport and Physical Education in New York in 2006. In 2012 Katrina was named one of three International Paralympic Committee Ambassadors at the London Paralympic Games.  

Katrina is also a wonderful awards host and conference master of ceremonies and facilitator.
