A legend of netball and now a respected media presenter, Sharelle McMahon is one of Australia's most recognisable sportswomen.

Bio

One of Australia’s most enduring netball representatives, Sharelle first played the game at the age of seven, in a team coached by her mother Olive in the country Victoria town of Bamawm, near Echuca.

Quickly establishing her skills through her teens, Sharelle’s first taste of international competition came as part of Australia’s Under 21 team in 1996.

From there, she was selected in the 1998 Commonwealth Games squad – the youngest member of the team – and was part of the team that won the gold medal in Kuala Lumpur.

In total, Sharelle won two gold and two silver medals across four Commonwealth Games. She carried the flag for Australia at the Delhi Games, was a part of three Netball World Cup teams for two wins and played for Australia 118 times, 12 of those as captain in an international career spanning 14 years. She finished with 2520 international goals at an average of just over 21 per Test.

Most famously, she took the final shot in the dying seconds of the gripping 1999 World Netball Cup final, capturing the title for the Diamonds in a heart-stopper against New Zealand.

On a national level, Sharelle played for the Melbourne Phoenix for 11 seasons, winning five championships before playing for the Melbourne Vixens in their inaugural 2008 season, capturing the Trans-Tasman Title with them in 2009.

Following her retirement in 2013, Sharelle has remained a meaningful contributor to Australian netball, making regular commentary appearances on Channel Nine’s Netball broadcast.

In 2016, Sharelle was inducted into the Sports Australia Hall of Fame.

Sharelle served on the Melbourne Stars (Big Bash Cricket) board from 2011 to 2019.

In 2020, Sharelle was appointed to a leadership position on the Australian Commonwealth Games team for the 2022 Birmingham Games – Australian Team Executive.

With the Melbourne Vixen’s MVP award named in her honour, Sharelle was inducted into the Netball Australia Hall of Fame in 2019.

Sharelle is an established media presenter and the current Assistant Coach of the 2020 championship-winning Melbourne Vixens.
