Kate Doughty is an Australian elite athlete, motivational speaker, mentor and registered Psychologist who knows no limits when it comes to adversity and achievement. Kate was born without a right hand, and at the age of 8, she was already making her mark receiving awards for violin and equestrian achievements.
Kate represented Australia at several international equestrian events, including the World Equestrian Games.
Less than 12 months ago, Kate made the dramatic change to triathlon. This was an ambition born from personal loss, with the death of her mother spurring Kate to make a fresh start within a new sport. The results of this transition has been astonishing with Kate winning Bronze at 2015 World Para-triathlon Championships and several gold and podium finishes on the ITU para-triathlon circuit to date. Kate successfully competed at 2016 Rio Paralympics in triathlon, placing 5th in the world.
