Dr Bryant, said her real love was seeing developments in sports medicine. “We are now able to give Australians everything they need to compete at the top level. It’s amazing how the science has evolved.” She said the most exciting moment of her career was the water polo team’s Sydney Olympics win. “There was an amazing feeling and energy when they won.
