Get to know your Diamonds: Nat Medhurst

2015 World Netball Cup Day 1 Australia v Trinadad & Tobago Natalie Medhurst

West Coast Fever shooter Nat Medhurst is our most-capped current Diamond. A clever play-making attacker with elusive qualities in the shooting circle, Medhurst is one of the longest-serving players in Australian netball.

Five minutes with Nat Medhurst

Do you have any pets?  I have two dogs – ‘Como’ who is a Hungarian Vizsla (and the favourite!) and ‘Maisy’ a black and tan King Charles Cavallier

Favourite TV show?  Suits and FRIENDS re-runsnat and dog

Favourite pizza topping?  Prawns and chilli

Favourite pre-game meal? The night before I love a good salmon fillet with salad and veggies. On the morning of a game it’s my egg white omelette!

What do you like to do outside of netball? Study (Food, Health & Wellness Coaching degree).. Take my dogs for a walk & enjoy the odd (very occasional) trip to the beach. It is only just down the road.. I’d be crazy not to!

What is your guilty pleasure? Terrible TV (aka.. keeping up with the Kardashians!) & gossip mags

Most played song on your playlist? Hilltop Hoods gets thrown on repeat a lot when I’m working out

Green juices or cake? Green juices/smoothies (you would never have guessed it! Ha)

Advice for young netballers?  Get the basics right first & always keep working on them.

The item I can’t go on tour without is… phone & my toothbrush (no-one likes bad breath & furry teeth!)

The books next to my bed are..’The Straight Dope’, ‘The Husbands Secret and & ‘All That I Am’

With my last ten dollars I’d… donate it.

My biggest inspiration is… teammates and those who fight personal battles so bravely.

My favourite coloured ASICS are… mainly white… they are a rare find these days especially in runners!
