Tania Van Heer

Tania Van Heer (athletics) was a star on the track at the Kuala Lumpur 1998 Commonwealth Games, winning bronze in the women’s 100m sprint, before winning gold as part of Australia’s women’s 4x100m and 4x400m relay teams. Van Heer led off the Australian 4×100 metres relay team of Lauren Hewitt, Nova Peris and Sharon Cripps to win the Commonwealth Games event. Shortly afterwards, Van Heer joined with Lee Naylor, Tamsyn Manou (Lewis) and Susan Andrews to win the 4×400 metres relay. Van Heer enjoyed her best years in 1998 and 1999 when she was coached by Auckland 1950 gold medallist Alastair Gordon, but sadly injured interrupted the rest of her career.
