Dual Olympic gold medallist, former captain of the Hockeyroos
Dual Olympic gold medallist, Jenn Morris represented Australia in hockey from 1991 to 2000, playing 150 games and scoring 86 goals.
She was one of the original players from the Ric Charlesworth era who remained undefeated in major tournaments for almost a decade until 2000. He described her as the 'best player in the world in her position, and also the most resilient'.
Her resiliency was underpinned by her determination to make the Sydney 2000 Olympic Team after spending two-and-a-half years on the injured list, following complications from a second knee reconstruction. The first, in 1991, effectively ruled her out of the Barcelona Olympics in 1992.
The gold medal at the Sydney Olympics was to be a memorable one: Jenn scored the final goal to claim victory for Australia in what was her 150th and final game. Jenn was one of the senior members of the team and shared the captaincy of the Hockeyroos throughout her career.
