Jackie Fairweather was one of World's premier triathletes and endurance athletes. Jackie's impact on Triathlon, Athletics, High Performance Sport and people in general was more than just winning a World Title or Commonwealth Games Bronze medal, she truly had a passion to make a difference in peoples lives. Former Triathlon Australia CEO, Anne Gripper, provides a wonderful overview of a remarkable life.
“As an athlete, Jackie was the best in the world – winning the 1996 ITU Triathlon World Championship and the 1996 and 1999 ITU Duathlon World Championships
“As a coach, Jackie laid the foundation for many of our young triathletes as the first U23 triathlon coach at the AIS.
“As a mentor, Jackie provided support and motivation for countless athletes – particularly when things were not going so well for them.
“As a supporter and friend of the sport, Jackie was always there – as a Board member, our Sport Performance Manager at the AIS and as wise counsel on issues of importance to our sport.
“This is your legacy, Jackie – we thank you for your passion and commitment to our sport, and will deeply miss your presence amongst us.”
