As a former national level 400m hurdler in Russia, Tatiana took up pole vaulting when she migrated to Australia in 1997. Her greatest sporting achievements to date have been winning a silver medal at the 2000 Sydney Olympics and gold at the 2002 Commonwealth Games. Tatiana has also been the face of the Spring Racing Carnival and Rexona as well as appearing on countless magazine covers.
Her outstanding performances at the elite level have continued and 2006 has proved to be her best year ever. She has jumped over 4.5metres 6 times and has recorded 2 new personal best heights within days of each other. Tatiana is one of the top ten pole vaulters in the world.
Tatiana is a passionate, motivational speaker and an experienced presenter. From a small school in Coober Pedy to the lawns of Parliament House, Canberra on Harmony Day. From the Australia Day Corporate Address to KPMG’s Women in Management Forum.
'I came from nowhere to somewhere by going step by step, never giving up and constantly setting myself new limits.'

- Tatiana's presentation was not only inspirational but also thought provoking for the women in attendance. She commented that the world of sport and business is very much alike in working to the best of ones mental and physical ability to achieve goals.

"From the very first phone call to Kris McCartney the bureau were extremely helpful and accommodating. Our engagement was a last minute request when a previously booked speaker from another agency fell ill. Kris was positive and gave me confidence she would identify and provide an appropriate speaker, given the tight time frames everything was organised quickly and professionally. I was very happy with the overall level of service and quality of presenter."
