Natalie Ward is one of only three women to win an Olympic medal and four games; the other two being softball teammates Tanya Harding and Lenaie Roche. She began her international career as a teenager, joining her sister Linda on the national team. She went on to become the first woman to play more than 400 games for Australia, and served as captain of the team. Ward regards the silver medal won in Athens as her proudest moment in sport.
