Athlete Biography

Ellia Green catapulted into the international spotlight when she scored an astonishing 80-metre try against Canada in the three-match exhibition series at the 2014 Gold Coast Sevens. Within four hours, the try had been viewed over 200,000 times on the Sevens World Series Facebook page.

Having started out as a sprinter, Green represented Australia in athletics at the 2009 World School Games in Qatar. She was recruited into the Australian Rugby Sevens program after attending a talent identification camp in Melbourne in 2012.

The agile winger made her international debut in 2013 in Houston. Since then she has become a rugby sevens household name, helping Australia win the 2015/2016 Rugby Sevens World Series. The 23-year-old will join a young team in Rio 2016 when the sport makes its Olympic debut.

Green was the fourth highest try-scorer in the 2015/2016 World Series, scoring a total of 17 tries. Her Australian teammate Emilee Cherry was the second highest try scorer with 22 tries.

Born in Suva, Fiji, the ‘Green Machine’ is undoubtedly the team’s biggest character. She claims her talents include barking like a dog, beat boxing and rapping. Green’s mum is her biggest career and life influence.
