She played in two Gold Medal winning Commonwealth Games teams, won a World Championship and last year surpassed the record for most test matches played for Australia. She has also led the Sydney Swifts to two National League championships. Liz has just returned to the court with the Swifts and hopes to be back with the Australian team later in the year.
