Who is Grace Walton?
I’m from Perth, Australia. I’m a CrossFit athlete that used to be a swimmer.
Where Did Your Fitness Journey Begin? How Did You Get Here?
Covid actually made me come home from backpacking in Europe and that's how I discovered CrossFit. I decided 6 months later to take training seriously and it progressed well and here we are!
What have you achieved in your sport thus far?
I finished 6th at the Torian pro in 2023 and 3rd at Down Under Championship in December. I have also completed the Rottnest channel swim which is a 20km swim from Perth to Rottnest island.
What is your favorite part about your sport?
I love that it showcases so many different movements and skills. I think it’s so cool to be able to work on so many different things at once. I think that working on so many things at once helps with life skills and then it creates a circle where it helps my CrossFit.

What has been your most memorable time as an athlete thus far?
