Katrina Gorry has been nominated for Swedish Citizen of the Year, with Gorry named on the shortlist for the award for the Hässleholmer of the Year for the midfielder's heroics at the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023™.
The midfielder started in all seven of Australia's games at the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023™, leading the competition in tackles made with 59 to her name and also covering 74.8 km across the tournament.
Gorry has been playing for Vittsjö GIK since 2022 alongside two fellow Aussies Clare Polkinghorne and Charli Grant, with Gorry looking to help the club to their first-ever UEFA Women's Champions League qualification, which they would secure if they finish the season in third place, currently in fourth place.
Gorry, or Mini as she is known to teammates and fans, returned to the Matildas in 2022 after giving birth to her daughter Harper, picking up right where she left off against New Zealand, named Player of the Match in Australia’s come-from-behind victory against their Trans-Tasman rivals.
Her club career has seen her spend most of her time with her hometown club Brisbane Roar, with stints in the USA with Utah Royals and with Avaldsnes in Norway in between. Gorry has now signed with Vittsjö GIK in Sweden, setting up a home away from home in Sweden.
