Netball Legend Laura Geitz On How She Knew It Was Time To Retire
Plus, how she’s embracing motherhood, new workouts and life after sport.
Laura Geitz is an icon of Australian netball. An absolute force on the court, she was a fearless defender who captained her beloved Queensland Firebirds and the Aussie Diamonds to great success, including world championships and a gold at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Since retiring in 2018, the Rebel ambassador and mum of two is still making her mark on the game. She does media commentary, runs netball clinics, mentors other athletes and has even designed a netball clothing range. Last year, the Firebirds renamed their Most Valuable Player Award as the Laura Geitz medal, highlighting how Laura – or Geitzy – really is the ultimate MVP.
In the new episode of the Women’s Health podcast Uninterrupted, Laura joins us to chat about epic netball rivalries, the wonderful chaos of parenthood and how what we see as a weakness can actually turn out to be our biggest strength.
