Rachael Grinham (squash) is one of Australia’s most decorated Commonwealth Games athletes winning eight medals, including two gold medals, from representing Australia at five Commonwealth Games. Debuting at the Kuala Lumpur 1998 Games as a 21-year-old, Rachael won silver with Robyn Cooper in the women’s singles. She returned at the Manchester 2002 Games winning bronze in both the singles and doubles events. It was a sister act at the Melbourne 2006 Games when Rachael paired with sister Natalie to win gold in the women’s doubles. After missing the Delhi 2010 Games due to injury, Grinham returned at the Glasgow 2014 Games to win her second gold medal, this time in the mixed doubles with David Palmer, before her latest bronze medal win with Donna Urquhart at the Gold Coast 2018 Games.
