Kerry McCann (nee Hindmarsh) was born in Bulli and became recognised as one of Australia’s finest distance athletes. She was a proud Coledale resident and loving mother of three with her husband Greg.

Over her career, Kerryn represented Australia in the women’s marathon at Olympic Games in Atlanta (1996), Sydney (2000) and Athens (2004). She also competed at three Commonwealth Games, winning gold medals in 2002 and 2006.

Kerryn was a modest yet popular athlete, who could often be found training along Wollongong’s beaches, roads and bike tracks. She also worked to support numerous community fundraising activities.

Kerryn was diagnosed with breast cancer in August 2007. Her depth of character and courage inspired many in our community, until her passing on 7 December 2008.

The Kerry McCann Athletics Track was named in her honour in 2009.

A plaque commemorating her achievements can also be found in St James Park in Kerryn’s home town of Coledale.
