Additional information

FITTEST ON EARTH
After finishing second two years in a row, finally won the CrossFit Games in 2017 and was crowned the 'Fittest Woman on Earth'. "There were so many emotions that ran through my mind. From disbelief to so much relief as this was something my fiance, Shane ORR (AUS), and I had set together in 2015. It's still sinking in." (Cape York News, 16 Aug 2017)

In 2016, became the only athlete to have competed at the CrossFit Games and an Olympic Games in the same year. (games.crossfit.com, Apr 2017)


WARRIOR
Wants to be the first woman to conquer the wall on TV show, Australian Ninja Warrior. "You bet I’ll be there, that’s if I qualify. It’s an amazing show, particularly for our junior generation who are hooked on the notion that it’s cool to be fit. Being fit is not rocket science - just work hard, have a goal and give it your best shot. If I can do it, anyone can." (Women's Day, 28 Aug 2017)
