2012 Triathlon Australia Hall of Fame Induction

This year we are delighted to be welcoming three of Australia's most celebrated female triathletes; Jackie Fairweather (nee Gallagher), Loretta Harrop and Emma Carney into our Hall Of Fame.
They join three of triathlon's legends; Greg Welch, Miles Stewart and Sydney 2000 Olympic silver medallist Michellie Jones in a select group of Australia's all-time greats in the Triathlon Australia Hall of Fame.

They will be officially inducted during our awards dinner.

Jackie Fairweather (nee Gallagher)

Jackie won her ITU World crown after winning silver in 1995 and silver again behind fellow inductee Emma in Cleveland in 1997 and to Loretta in 1999.

A former athletics star, Jackie became a household name as Jackie Gallagher with stunning performances throughout her career.

“It is a huge honour to be inducted alongside Emma and Loretta. I have great memories of racing them both – two of my greatest rivals,” recalled Fairweather.

“It was such a challenge to try to work out how to beat them! I still have the greatest respect for them both, but these days the relationships are a bit more relaxed and friendly! I can’t wait to catch up at the awards dinner and share memories and laughs.”

Loretta Harrop

Loretta joined Michellie Jones and Nicole Hackett on the start line for triathlon's Olympic debut in Sydney in 2000 finishing fifth.

She the went on to claim Australia's second Olympic sliver in Athens in 2004.

She had been crowned overall ITU World Cup champion in 1999 and in her Olympic year in 2004 also won silver in the World Championships in Madeira.

"It is such an honour to be included - these are all the names I aspired to when I started triathlon and now I am a part of them - this is a big thrill,".

Emma Carney

Emma Carney had an extraordinary career, chalking up an amazing 12 consecutive World Cup victories between June 1995 and April 1997 in a reign that made her one of the most feared triathletes in the world.

She was the world ranked number one woman for three years in succession in 1995, 1996 and 1997 and all in all chalked up 19 World Cup victories.

Emma only got serious about triathlon 18 months before winning her first ITU World title in Wellington in 1994 to launch a spectacular career.

Her performances through 1995 and 1997 will go down in triathlon history as one of the great individual performances in the sport.
