A former national level 400m hurdler in Russia, Tatiana took up pole vaulting after she migrated to Australia in 1997.  Within 12 months of picking up a pole, she had become one of the world's best, placing second in the '98 Goodwill Games in New York. In her first major championships she won bronze at the '99 World Championships.

Tatiana is studying marketing and building a successful career in her limited spare time. Launched in 2001 her range of lingerie (Tatiana Teen Girl) and Pyjamas (TVPJs) were a great success in the first season. She is also very popular with photographers around the world regularly appearing on the cover of a wide range of magazines.

She was named by sports network ESPN as one of the world's ten sexiest athletes.
