Sunday Herald Sun - Stellar - - Kate Langbroek - with NATALIE MEDHURST

You’ve reached the up­per ech­e­lons of Aus­tralian net­ball. How many hours did your mum spend driv­ing you to prac­tice?

Too many to count! Coun­try kids do a lot of trav­el­ling, and we did eight-hour round trips to at­tend train­ing camps.

Have you thanked her?

I still owe Mum a few cof­fees, but I would like to think I did an ex­cel­lent job at mak­ing sure she stayed awake dur­ing the drives.

How many goals do you think you’ve shot so far?

I’ve put up my fair share.

Ath­letes are fa­mous for goal-set­ting. What are yours? The next Olympics, In­sta-fame or find­ing your 1995 GS bib in lost prop­erty?

I think, with my swim­ming abil­i­ties, the next Olympics are within reach. They do have the “sur­vival stroke” in the Olympics, don’t they? Sun­corp Su­per Net­ball starts Fe­bru­ary 18 on the Nine Network.
