Jana Pittman is one of Australia’s top athletes. She is a two-time World Champion and a four-time Commonwealth Champion who first qualified for the Olympics at the age of only 16 years old.
She has also been part of the Australian Women’s bobsleigh team, making her the first woman to represent Australia in both a summer and winter Olympics.
Outside of sport, Jana has completed a Bachelor of Medicine & Surgery at Western Sydney University in 2019. And earlier in 2010, she completed a Masters of Reproductive Medicine at the University of NSW and has also received a PhD in Obstetrics (focusing on aspects of uterus transplantation). She is now a practicing Doctor specialising in the field of Women’s Health.
Just recently, Jana was a participant on the intense show SAS Australia on Channel 7, despite it being only 5.5 months after the birth of her last child. Jana is a mother to six children, and recently gave birth to twins!
Join us for a Q&A session with Jana, as she takes us through her life and shares stories of triumph, defeat, failure and success. She will take you on a journey through the peaks and troughs that helped shape her career and built her into who she is today.
