Alisa Camplin OAM's Biography
Olympic champion aerial skier, Alisa Camplin, won gold at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. It was the second skiing gold medal ever won by Australia, and the first won by an Australian woman. Having faced her share of obstacles to achieve extraordinary results, Alisa shares her determination and commitment as she inspires audiences with her keynote presentation. Alisa is an honest and genuine speaker.
Originally training as a gymnast and sailor, Alisa saw early success winning two Australian National Sailing Titles in the Hobie Cat catamarine class. Inspired by the success of skier Kirsty Marshall, Camplin then turned to skiing at the age of 19.
After a great deal of training, Alisa was involved in a skiing accident shortly before the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics and although she was initially told that it was just bruising, doctors in Salt Lake City found that she had fractured both of her ankles. She was advised not to compete but went against the medical advice. During her event, she landed a spectacular triple twisting double somersault.
Alisa was again injured in the lead up to the Turin Winter Olympics in 2006. A serious knee injury in October 2005 led to a second knee reconstruction operation just four months prior to the event. She returned to limited training eleven weeks after the operation, and managed to finish with a bronze medal in her event.
She was awarded an Order of Australia medal in 2007.
Alisa worked as an executive with IBM for 16 years, as well as doing promotional and charity work. She joined the board of the Collingwood Football Club in December 2009, replacing Sally Capp.
Following the tragic death of their first child, Alisa and husband Oliver Warner set up the charity Finnan’s Gift which helps the Royal Children’s Hospital raise money to buy equipment for the treatment of babies with heart defects.
Alisa is requested as a public speaker by multi-billion dollar companies and small organizations alike. Eloquent, passionate, and always professional, Camplin is both entertaining and motivating.
