Australian Volleyball at the Olympics

First Medal

Australia’s first ever volleyball Olympic medal was won by Kerri Pottharst and Natalie Cook, when they won the bronze in Atlanta 1996, behind the Brazilian pairing of Sandra Pires and Jacqueline Silva. Four years later in Sydney, the same pair won the gold medal before an hometown audience on Bondi Beach.


Only one Australian indoor volleyball team has ever qualified to play at the Olympic Games, the men in Athens 2004.
