Q & A

Greatest sporting achievement: Winning bronze at the 2008 Beijing Paralympic games

Greatest achievement off the field: Marrying my husband Lee

Who is your sporting heroine? Alison Mosley because she helped me at the start of my wheelchair basketball sporting career.

How many hours per week to you train/exercise? Leading into the London Paralympics we were training at least 14 hours a week.

What do you love about your sport? Being able to travel around the world with 11 other friends while playing the sport I love.

If you could change something about your sport, what would it be? The level of media attention and support. Wheelchair basketball is a very exciting sport to watch! I would love to see it on mainstream television channels.

What motivates you? I hate losing. I also like to challenge the limitations of my disability. I want to be the best that I can be.

Do you have a profession outside of your sport? When I am not away for wheelchair basketball, or when I am not at university, I am a legal secretary.

Three words that describe you: White Line Fever

If I wanted to play your sport, what advice would you give me? Contact your state wheelchair sports organisation (in WA it is Wheelchair Sports WA) and they will organise for you to try out wheelchair basketball

Clare Nott Supports Sport for Women Day

I support Sport for Women Day because being healthy is very important and sport is a great way to increase fitness as well as socialise with like-minded women. I encourage every child and adult with a disability to try out a sport because disability is not a road block, it is a mere hurdle to overcome on your way to a successful life.
