Athlete Biography

After bursting onto the national hockey scene in 2013, Jane-Anne ‘Jane’ Claxton will make her Olympic debut in Rio in the midfield for the Hockeyroos.

Claxton won gold at the 2013 Australian Youth Olympic Festival with a 2-1 victory over China. The same year she was crowned the South Australian Sports Institute Junior Female Athlete of the Year.

She secured herself as a regular in the Hockeyroos in 2013 when she helped win gold at the Oceania Cup and the World League Semi-Final, as well as silver in with World League Final. In 2014 she helped Australia claim gold at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games and silver at the Netherlands World Cup.

2015 was a huge year for the midfielder, being selected in all the major international tournaments. She also bought a house in Perth with her partner and Australian canoeist Todd Brewer, and welcomed ‘Hugo’ the sausage dog into her family – who even has his own Instagram account.

The Adelaide-born athlete credits her father Bob, current secretary of the Oceania Hockey Federation, and her brother for her entry into hockey. At the age of six she began playing in a mixed gender competition, and although the rough and tumble of playing with the boys nearly put her off, she has never looked back.
