Ms Madeleine Hogan
Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science, and Australian Paralympic Athlete (Javelin)
At the 2012 London Paralympics Madeleine (Maddy) Hogan will take to the field in Javelin for Australia (Classification F46). After winning Bronze at the Beijing Paralympics in 2008 and Gold at the 2011 IPC World Athletic Championships in New Zealand; Maddy comes to London as the current world champ looking to complete the dream.
Maddy’s strength allowed her to overcome torn elbow ligaments in 2010 to beat her personal best by 4m during her Gold performance at the 2011 IPC World Champs. With the pressure of entering as world champ Maddy’s goal for London is to beat her personal best again, a throw likely to win Gold.
Off the field Maddy balances training with work at a Camberwell construction company and studying a Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science at Deakin. As a recognised Elite Athlete Friendly University (EAFU), Deakin provides support and flexibility to elite athletes to ensure students can manage competing goals and dreams.
