A former elite Australian rules footballer, and television and radio sports commentator, Chyloe Kurdas has spent the past decade at AFL Victoria building the catalyst for Australia’s first ever national women’s professional competition, AFLW.

In doing so, Chyloe combined her studies and work in health promotion, psychology and education to build award winning high performance sporting programs for adolescent girls that focused on the whole athlete.

Chyloe credits being one of the first women to play football on the MCG as one of best days of her life.
