Genevieve Gregson is a 3x Olympic finalist, 2x World Championship finalist, the Australian record holder in the 3,000m steeplechase, and the 3rd fastest Australian woman all-time in the marathon. Genevieve’s introduction to elite running began at the University of Florida where she took up a scholarship for 4 years before qualifying for the London 2012 Olympic Games. In Florida, Genevieve learnt a lot about diet, and strength and conditioning, which held her in good stead once she turned professional and returned to Australia to join the Melbourne Track Club under the guidance of Nic Bideau. After making the Rio 2016 Olympic Games final in the 5,000m, Genevieve began to add longer distances to her repertoire, and has now made the transition to the roads. After a 2:28:33 debut at the 2023 Gold Coast Marathon, Genevieve went to the Valencia Marathon later that year and ran 2:23:08, the 3rd fastest time in history by an Australian woman. This run qualified Genevieve for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games which will be her 4th Olympics.
