Hannah Mouncey is an Australian rules footballer and, most notably, an international handball player, having represented Australia 22 times to date including at the 2013 World Championships. Hannah narrowly missed out on qualification for the 2016 Olympic Games with the men’s national team, immediately after which she began the transition from male to female. In October 2017, Hannah’s nomination for the AFLW draft was rejected on the grounds of her transgender status just one day before the event took place, despite being tipped by football insiders to go as high as one of the top five picks in the draft.
