Guest Speaker:

Two times World Champion, Four times Commonwealth Champion, in the sport of athletics, Jana Pittman personifies resilience and determination. When continued injuries hampered her athletic career and could have signalled retirement, she swapped the track for the ice. Jana joined the Australian Women’s bobsleigh team, to become the first women to represent Australia in both a Summer (2000,2004) and Winter Olympic Games (2014).

Off the track, Jana completed a Bachelor of Medicine & Surgery and is now a registrar in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. She has completed a Masters of Reproductive Medicine at the University of NSW and has initiated her PhD in Obstetrics (focusing on aspects of uterus transplantation).

Jana was a participant in the gruelling television show SAS Australia on Channel 7 and more recently she joined her 16-year-old son Cornelis on Channel 10’s ‘The Amazing Race-Australia’, raising money for the hospital she works at ‘The Royal Hospital for Women’. Jana recently released her second book ‘Enough’ in early 2023.

Despite her career success, Jana says her greatest achievement is being a mum to her 6 children, following the birth of twins in 2022.
