Athlete Biography

On her Hockeyroos debut at the 2016 International Tri-Series in Singapore, 18-year-old Grace Stewart scored a goal to secure Australia a 1-all draw against Germany in the opening round of the tournament.

The rookie from the NSW South Coast proved herself to be quick and agile in the goal circle, helping Australia defeat Great Britain in a six game series in early 2016. A flurry of goals at the 2016 Hawkes Bay Cup, where Australia secured the bronze medal, cemented Stewart’s position in the Hockeyroos for the final tournaments leading up the Rio Games.

Her impressive performance at the 2016 Champions Trophy in London and the International Hockey Tournament in Darwin secured Stewart her debut Olympic appearance in Rio 2016.

The forward moved from her hometown Gerringong to Perth in 2016 when she was promoted from the National Junior Squad and awarded a Hockey Australia Scholarship to train full-time with the senior team at the Western Australian base.

A love of hockey runs in the Stewart family, with her two sisters Lilly and Demi also representing NSW on the hockey pitch
