Georgia Griffith has been one of Australia’s leading middle-distance runners for many years. She first represented Australia at the 2014 world junior champs, and since then has competed in two world champs, one Commonwealth Games and one Olympic Games. With PBs of 2:00.13 over 800m and 4:04.17 over 1500m, Griffith belongs to a small group of women capable of beating the likes of Linden Hall and Jessica Hull.
