Being an Olympian, Caitlin knows what it takes to earn Olympic success. She trains 16 sessions a week including boxing, strength and conditioning training. In the lead up to the Paris Olympics there are a number of training camps and international competitions with the national team. Some activities will be self-funded and Caitlin is unable to work while at home due to training 2-3 times a day, creating a strain on her. 


It is important in boxing to get as much international activity as possible, to continue her growth and keep at a high international standard coming into the Olympics. Your support for Caitlin will really make a difference in her Olympic campaign. 


Your contributions will go towards:

  • Training
  • Nutrition
  • Recovery
  • Training equipment
  • Travel to training and competitions 
  • Living expenses
  • Accommodation


Caitlin is aiming to be Australia’s first ever Olympic Boxing gold medalist and the first ever female medalist. She is the first Australian female to qualify for the Olympics twice. 


Career highlights:

75 kg Middleweight Australian boxer. Tokyo 2020 Olympian, qualified for the Paris 2024 Olympics, 3x World medalist, including a silver at the 2023 Elite Boxing World Championships in an Olympic Weight Division, 2x Commonwealth Games medalist, 10 x Australian champion, 2023 Pacific Games Champion and Youth Olympic bronze medalist. 


Caitlin is the Australian boxing team captain and has been on the Australian boxing team for 12 years, travelling all over the world to compete since she was 15. She is an AIS mental fitness ambassador, does school presentations through the Victorian Institute of Sport, in 2023 was on various committees in the International Boxing Association, is currently on the Athlete Advisory committees for World Boxing and Combat Australia and is an ambassador and works with a disability support service when she is able to between competitions and training.


Caitlin’s biggest inspirations in life are her parents. Caitlin’s Dad worked 2 jobs, 7 days a week for most of her life and her Mum would work multiple jobs to raise money for her to train and compete, and they would still go to training every night. They always pushed her to do her best and instilled in her to never give up. Her drive and motivation in life is to not only do well for herself but to do well for them and be the best version she can be. 


Caitlin’s strength and determination has positioned her as a genuine medal chance for Paris.
