(CNN)Tributes have been paid to Jacinda Barclay, a multi-sport Australian athlete who has died aged 29.
Barclay played Australian rules in the AFLW for the Greater Western Sydney Giants and had a sporting background in baseball and American football.
She made 23 appearances for the Giants over four seasons, represented Australia as a pitcher in the Women's Baseball World Cup five times, and also played as a quarterback for the Chicago Bliss in the Legends Football League in the United States, winning a championship in her debut season.
In a statement released by the AFLW, Barclay's family said: "She was a shining comet that soared through this world casting her radiant light of love on all she met.
"Though that comet has now shattered into a million pieces, the memory of it will remain a beacon for all women in high profile sports to strive to excel, to dare to be great while staying humble and proud."
At about 4:35 pm on Monday, police received information regarding a woman who was found unresponsive at a residence in Chidlow, according to a Western Australia Police Force spokesperson.
"Police and St John Ambulance personnel attended the residence and upon arrival it was confirmed the 29-year-old woman was deceased," said the spokesperson.
"The woman's death is not being treated as suspicious and a report will be prepared for the coroner."
