KATE LEEMING- Adventurer
Kate is one of Australia’s leading women explorers. Kate has cycled a distance equivalent to twice around the world at the Equator. In August 2010, Kate became the first person in history to cycle an unbroken line from Africa’s most westerly to its most easterly point, from Cap Vert, Senegal to Cape Hafun, Somalia when she completed her 22,000km Breaking the Cycle in Africa expedition.
The physical aim of Kate’s next major challenge, Breaking the Cycle South Pole, is to make the first bicycle crossing of the Antarctic continent via the South Pole (2017-18). Kate aims to use her expedition to support access to education in Kenya and South Africa through an innovative partnership with YGAP (Y Generation Against Poverty), as well as run a global education programme with the Victorian Department of Education and Training and Scouts Australia about leadership.
In between expeditions, Kate works as a real tennis professional, having been ranked as high as World No.2 and winning 5 Australian Open singles titles, despite 8 knee operations! But now Kate has found a better way through DMA Clinical Pilates and Physiotherapy.
