Hannah Every-Hall appointed VIS General Manager High Performance

We are thrilled to announce that Olympian Hannah Every-Hall will be joining the Victorian Institute of Sport (VIS) in the position of General Manager High Performance (GMHP).

A proud Victorian, Every-Hall has the ideal background for this role. As a former champion rower having represented Australia across a 17-year career, she knows what it takes to win and understands what is required to develop athletes for success at international benchmark events.

As an athlete, she first competed for Australia at the Nations Cup in 1999 in Hamburg, Germany where she won the U23 Lightweight Women’s Double Sculls. She went on to represent Australia at seven World Rowing Cups and multiple World Championships, as well as competing at the London 2012 Olympic Games, where she finished fifth in the lightweight double scull.

Every-Hall was one of three women to make history at the London Games as they became the first Australian mothers to compete in rowing at an Olympic competition.

Off the water, she is highly experienced and a very highly regarded leader of people and teams, with a focus on enabling athletes and coaches to achieve their best. 

Every-Hall has a degree in Human Movement, as well as a Masters’ Degree in Dietetics from Deakin University. She also has high performance coaching accreditations and currently holds the role of Head Women’s Coach at Caulfield Grammar, a position she will be transitioning from to take up her VIS role. 

She currently works with the Australian Olympic Committee in the role of Sport Services Manager and was previously the Modern Pentathlon Australia Pathways & Performance Director.  She is also currently a member of the World Rowing Athletes Commission and Fairness Committee.

“Hannah brings a great blend of experience as an athlete, coach, scientist, and manager to the role, along with her personal characteristics of warmth, passion and a ‘can do’ attitude,” said VIS CEO Anne Marie Harrison

“Her knowledge of the HP system and our stakeholders will hold her in good stead in forming the important partnerships with her programs,” added Harrison

Every-Hall joins the VIS on 12 September 2023, following her notice period with the AOC and pre-existing commitment as Team Manager for the Modern Pentathlon World Championships/Olympic Qualifier in late August.
