    Nat Medhurst was an elite netballer for a very long time. “Seventeen years,” she laughed. “Go figure! If I’m brutally honest, I don’t have any physical attributes. I’m not one of those players who is incredibly quick or really good in the air. I’m not strong, and I don’t have height that works for me.”

    While Medhurst is quick to point out her flaws, it’s less tangible assets that kept her at the top for almost two decades; a Phar Lap sized heart, titanium strength mental toughness, and a serious dose of white line fever. Added together, they made her into the player she was. They made her a legend.

    Medhurst grew up in a laid back country town where sport was taken seriously, but doubled as entertainment. She could have drifted along the same relaxed route, but for a teacher who recognised her talent, and parents who helped her to develop it. Together with running a pub and bringing up four children, Trevor and Jo-Anna Medhurst made the eight hour weekly commute, taking their daughter to netball training in Adelaide.
