Created by elite athlete and founder of The [Female] Athlete Project, Chloe Dalton, with magnificent illustrations by Kim Siew, The A-Z of Who I Could Be features 26 of Australia's top female and non-binary athletes, Olympians, Paralympians and World Champions – from Ash Barty to Zali Steggall – across 26 different sports.
about the [female] athlete project
A recent study found that women make up 40% of participants in sport, yet receive only 4% of the sports media coverage.
One day, female athletes will receive equal coverage in the media, and will be recognised by their achievements, not by their gender.
Until then, we will keep sharing the stories of epic Aussie [female] athletes.
Join Chloe Dalton, Olympic Gold Medallist, as she chats to World Champions, fellow Olympians, and athletes at the top of their game.
PLUS - check out our weekly podcast 'the wrap' covering everything happening in women's sports news. If you prefer to read your news, sign up to our weekly newsletter above.

At the Rio 2016 Olympics, Dalton won Gold with the Australian 7s team and was awarded an Order of Australia Medal for Service to Sport. She was also recognised as Australia’s top Rugby 7s player in 2017, winning the Shawn Mackay Medal.
Chloe then crossed codes again to Aussie rules, making her debut in 2019 for Carlton in the AFLW. She was recently named Runner-Up in the Carlton Best and Fairest Awards for the 2020 AFLW season.
Chloe currently plays AFLW for the GWS Giants.
