Adeline Maria Gray (born January 15, 1991) is a four-time world champion wrestler from the United States.

Gray was born on January 15, 1991, in Denver, Colorado and began her wrestling career with the help of her father.[1]

On September 27, 2012 Gray competed in the 2012 Women's World Wrestling Championships in Edmonton, Canada. In her first match she faced off against Dzhanan Manolova of Bulgaria, Adeline came out a little slow then exploded with a great 3 point throw and won the 1st period 3-0. In the second period she took Manolova down and turned her in a leg lace for another point, then she just defended the rest of the period for a 2-0 win. The next round she faced off against Yoshiko Inoue of Japan, the only one to score on Adeline. Inoue scored first in the first period but Adeline came back and scored on a push out to secure the 1st period win. In the second Adeline looked in control with her under hooks scoring a throw-by and getting her leg lace for a 3-0 win. In the Semi Finals she faced off against Kaur Navjot of India, Adeline looked very confident and showed no fear and dominated Navjot from the start. Adeline secured her second takedown and controlled her legs standing tilts to a stack for the pin.

In the Finals she faced off against wrestler (2012 Jr World Champion) Dorothy Yeats of Canada only 19 years old and the crowd favorite. Adeline came out very confident and took it to Yeats throwing her for 3 points and scoring in another takedown to win the 1st period 4-0. In the second Adeline stayed in control and secured a takedown late in the period then put Yeats on her back with her signature arm-bar-wing and pinned her with 4 seconds left for a dominating win.

She is also the first female wrestler to have her own signature shoe. The ASICS Aggressor 3 L.E. Adeline Gray[3] wrestling shoe is a special edition signature shoe designed by Adeline. Outside of competing, Gray has been wrestling the bigger issues of sexism, and promoting equal recognition and participation on elite levels, such as the Olympics and college wrestling.

She competed in the 75 kg event at the 2016 Summer Olympics, where she won her first match against Andrea Olaya Gutierrez of Colombia,[4] but lost her quarterfinal match against Vasilisa Marzaliuk of Belarus.[5]
