The talented athlete was a pioneer in Australian sport, having achieved outstanding results in baseball and football. Barclay played baseball, Australian Rules and American football, and represented her country at international level.

She started playing Australian Rules football at the age of 12 before concentrating on baseball where she showed stunning results, making her international debut at 17 years of age.

As a pitcher she represented Australia at five baseball World Cups between 2008 and 2016, and won a silver medal in 2010.

She was scouted for the American football team the Chicago Bliss in 2016, winning a championship in her first season. Barclay returned to Aussie Rules football when the Australian Rules Football League (AFWL) for female players was established in 2017, joining the Greater Western Sydney team.
