"If it wasn’t for CrossFit I would have never picked up on the weight training. At the time I thought, why not do both? What if one thing doesn’t work out? I would have another thing to fall back on.

Hailing from the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, Australia, Tia burst on the CrossFit Games scene earning the title of 2nd Fittest Woman on Earth in both 2015 and 2016. She also quickly established herself as one of Australia's best Olympic Weightlifters, earning the country's only female weightlifting spot to the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics.

She currently resides in Gladstone, Queensland, Australia where she owns and runs CrossFit Gl
