Adeline Gray is a three-time World Champion (2012, 2014, 2015), five-time World Championship medalist and has been undefeated in international competition for the past two years. She currently has a 37-match win streak and holds the #1 world ranking spot in 75kg/165lbs. At the 2016 Olympic Trials in April, Gray punched her ticket to her first Olympics. Gray was born in Denver, Colorado and began wrestling at age 6 after her father, George, taught her basic moves on the mat. Gray had always envisioned playing college soccer but her Olympic dreams were greater. Gray honed her skills wrestling with the boys’ team at Bear Creek where she competed in the Colorado high school competition circuit. Gray didn’t let people’s disapproval of going out for the boys’ team stop her. Instead, she shifted her focus on her Olympic dreams. After winning a junior world title at the age of 17, Gray moved to an Olympic development program at Northern Michigan University. In 2009, Gray relocated to Colorado Springs where she moved into the dorms and started training at the Olympic Training Center. At the 2012 Olympic Trials, Gray fell one step short of making the team. Although she attended the 2012 Olympic Games in London as an alternate, Gray made a promise to herself that not only would she compete at the 2016 Olympics, but she would bring home the gold.Seven weeks later, Gray won her first World Championship gold medal. In 2014, Gray won her second World Championship title. At the 2015 World Wrestling Championships, Gray defended her world title. Her third World title made her the second-most winningest U.S. women’s wrestler. Adeline is also one of two women to have won back-to-back World titles among U.S. women. In May 2016, Gray graduated with a Bachelor of Science from DeVry University. Gray currently trains at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs with her coach, Terry Steiner.
