Australian Diamonds and Collingwood Magpies
Known as a smart and competitive player, Madi captained the Australian team that won the 2009 World Youth Netball Championships. Since 2010 then she has been a regular feature in the Australian Diamonds team with 2012 being her breakout year taking out the Holden Australian International Player of the Year award, Australian ANZ Championship Player of the Year award and the prestigious Liz Ellis Diamond, the highest individual honour in Australian netball.
Internationally ranked as one of the world best players, Madi took out a second Liz Ellis Diamond award in 2014 after another stellar season in the green and gold which included a Gold medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games and her second International Player of the Year award. A serious knee injury ruled Madi out of the 2015 season and her commitment to 12 months of rehabilitation allowed her to return to the court in 2016 in career best form whilst also being named Captain of the Melbourne Vixens. Capping off a brilliant 2016 Madi was very deservingly awarded the ANZ Championships MVP for the second time in her career.
With some exciting changes made to Australian netball in 2017 Madi opted for a fresh start with a brand new team at the Collingwood Magpies and was named their inaugural captain, voted in almost unanimously by her teammates and coaching staff. Madi is looking forward to an exciting lead up to the 2018 Commonwealth Games where she hopes to help the Diamonds win a 2nd Gold Medal in front of a home crowd on the Gold Coast.
Away from netball Madi is a qualified physical education teacher and a die-hard health and wellbeing fanatic who has very strong family values.
