Katrin Garfoot, gold medalist in the Women’s Individual Time Trial (Road) at the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in 2018, has been an elite member of the Australian Women’s Cycling Team and has represented Australia at a number of World Championship and international events.

After two successful seasons of racing in Australia, Katrin represented Australia in World Championships, Commonwealth Games and the Rio Olympic Games. By her fourth year as a professional cyclist, Katrin had achieved two Bronze and one Silver Medal at World Championships. Katrin was crowned Australian Female Road Cyclist of the Year for three years in a row: 2015, 2016 and 2017.

In May 2018, Katrin announced her retirement from competitive cycling and is committed to making a contribution to Sport and H/PE outcomes in a meaningful way post competition.
