Athlete Biography

With over a decade of experience playing in the WNBL where she has racked up over 200 games, Katie Rae-Ebzery will get her first chance at Olympic competition at Rio.

She started out at the AIS in 2005 before playing a season for the Dandenong Rangers. Following her stint with the team she walked away from the sport. Having not touched a ball for six months she began to miss the sport she had loved so much and joined the Sydney Uni Flames for the 2010/11 season and has been there ever since.

Having won two World University Games bronze medals in 2011 and 2013 she also finished third in the FIBA 3X3 Women’s World Championship in 2012.

Ebzery made her debut on the side’s 2015 European tour before the 26-year-old helped Australia qualify for the Rio Olympics as the Aussie side defeated New Zealand in the two match 2015 Oceania Championships.

Following the 2016 Olympic Games Ebzery will take up her first international contract playing with Dynamo Moscow in Russia.
