Commonwealth Games Australia alumni recognised at Women’s Health Women in Sport Awards


Six past and present Commonwealth Games members have been recognised as winners at Women’s Health’s 2022 Women in Sport (WinS) Awards.

Marking the 10th annual event, the awards recognise and support female athletes at all levels, with each of the winners showing the world that limits can be dismantled and boundaries stretched, serving as role models to younger generations and being symbols of empowerment and strength.

Four-time Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games gold medallist Kaylee McKeown OAM (swimming) was recognised as the Young Achiever of the Year, while Madison de Rozario OAM (athletics), a four times Commonwealth Games gold medallist – the only Australian para-athlete to have won four gold medals – was named the Women’s Health Athlete 2022.




The Australian Women’s Cricket Team were acknowledged as the Champion Team, following their incredible achievements on the international sporting stage which culminated in their success at the Birmingham Games, where they defeated India to become the first ever female gold medallists in T20 Cricket.

Ellie Cole OAM (swimming), four-time Commonwealth Games medallist, was awarded the Outstanding Woman in Sport Award, while Commonwealth Games royalty were also honoured, with six-time gold medallist Nicole Livingstone OAM (swimming) awarded the Person of Sporting Influence award, and Lauren Jackson AO (basketball) inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Commonwealth Games Australia would like to congratulate all winners on their achievements.

With thanks to Women’s Health.
