What they say about KK

Katie Page

"Katie Kelly is exceptional. She is an exceptional para-triathlete, philanthropist and social welfare entrepreneur. Her achievements in just one of these fields puts her in the league of champion. That she has reached the highest levels of accomplishment in each of these fields means she is in a league of her own."

Katie Page
CEO, Harvey Norman
John Wylie

"Katie Kelly is a remarkably impressive Australian who has conquered disability through Usher Syndrome to win Gold for Australia at the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games. Her victory in Rio, was one of the most inspirational I have seen in Australian sport. It had it all – courage, resilience, and a true team effort. She is also a community-minded person who is committed to giving back to sport and to Australian life more broadly. She is a genuine role model and leader."

John Wylie
Chairman Sport Australia
Chris Anderson

"I first met Katie almost 20 years ago when she was a part of a winning environment at Melbourne Storm. She has taken her amazing attitude to life to an even greater level of personal success when in 2016 she became the first ever Australian athlete to win a Paralympic gold medal. It was one of my great sporting moments to be there at the finish line in Rio to see her achieve a dream of becoming the best in the world in her sport. This latest KK initiative (Sport Access Foundation) exemplifies her determination to allow more young people to share in her passion for sport."

Chris Anderson
Former NRL Coach of Melbourne Storm and Australian Kangaroos
Amanda Shalala

"The drive and commitment Katie Kelly displayed to win Gold at the Rio Paralympics are qualities that will ensure the Sport Access Foundation is a success. Katie has shown the immense power of sport for people with a disability, and now she will unlock opportunities for children to experience the same."

Amanda Shalala
ABC Journalist, former Fox Sports Journalist

"I am a huge fan of supporting women in sport and I was amazed that with all your achievements Australia isn’t talking about you more! I think supporting incredible women like yourself is my little way of trying to help make Australia better. I’m a relatively young woman in the corporate world myself and I can see what an impact strong, skilful, dedicated women in the sporting arena (like you) has on how everyone treats women and the dialogue about women (both in the office and outside)."

"There wasn’t many people in the room who didn’t wipe their eyes. A very relevant, enlightening and gripping chat. What an admirable, courageous and strong women. My favourite part was when she said that she didn’t want to go to a special school when she was 7 and that continued all through her career and life to date never ticking the box that she had a disability. I loved it."

Tilly Rogers

"Katie, well done on the great speech that you presented at the Opening Ceremony of the National Cricket Inclusion Championship - I know many appreciated and absorbed your words."

Garry West-Bail
General Manager Deaf Sports Australia
Hollie Feller

"Katie, your presentation covered a wealth of information that the Health and Research professionals (in Deaf and Blind conditions) and families found extremely useful. Your story and delivery was perfect for the audience and we have already had some extremely positive feedback."
