- Alternative Names
- Mitchell, Chantelle (maiden name)
Chantelle Newbury has retired from competitive diving and is one of Australia's most successful international competitors in the sport. She won gold at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, Victoria and in so doing proved that pregnancy is not necessarily an obstacle to success in competitive sport.
After competing in her last event she took a home pregnancy test and discovered she was pregnant just minutes before being called to her medal presentation. 'I'm the only diver to compete and win at a major event while pregnant yet if I had known for sure and informed team doctors they would have banned me from competition,' she said.
