Meet Ellia Green, The Baddest Woman In Rio

Meet the baddest woman in Rio.

Posted on

Australia - and the world - meet your new hero: Ellia Green.

At 171cm (5'6") and 76kg (167lbs), she is the enforcer of Australia's gold medal winning women's rugby sevens team.


Aussies have known about Green since this barnstorming 80-metre, match winning try at the Gold Coast Sevens last year.

But now, the world has finally gotten a taste of her after she dominated in the Rugby Sevens in Rio.


First, there was her try in the opening match to help Australia to a 36-0 victory against Fiji.

Then came a bruising encounter against the USA, in which Green was taken from the field in the first minute after this bone crunching tackle.

BANG! Ellia Green sidelined after sickening hit. But she didn't want to go off! #WhatALegend


And have we mentioned her Instagram?

Which is both fun...

But anyway, back to the rugby. Because on Tuesday morning she did it again.

So now on top of being an all round bad ass, Ellia Green can add Olympic gold medallist to her résumé.

The lesson in all of this: Don't fuck with Ellia Green.
