Other Natasha became the Commonwealth and Oceania champion in the 58kg division in 2000.

She plans to retire after the Commonwealth Games to spend more time with her family but would like to remain in the sport, possibly as a coach or official.

She also has a Bachelor of Economics degree.

She gave birth to baby Brandon in January 2004, and running around after a lively two-year old doesn't give much time for hobbies!

She is currently ranked third in the Commonwealth in her class.
