During her 15 year career as an elite athlete Anna Meares collected 18 gold medals, 16 silver medals and 10 bronze medals at Olympic, World and Commonwealth Games level. Anna was named Australia’s flag bearer and team captain at the 2016 Rio Olympics. In retirement from sport Anna pursued many passions and interests including foster care, charitable endeavours and will be strongly present in the team for Australia in 2022 as the General Manger for the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.
She also joined the Channel 7 expert commentary team for the Tokyo Olympics 2020/1, a position she has also filled for the Santos Tour Down Under since 2017.
