The rumors are true. Justin Medeiros confirmed everyone’s suspicions earlier this week while on The Sevan Podcast that he and Ellie Turner are dating.
In what started out as Medeiros and Turner training together for a week after Wodapalooza turned into more over the next few months as they were preparing for the 2023 CrossFit Games.
Training together worked on the competition floor. Medeiros was able to defend his 2021 Games title to win his second consecutive CrossFit Games. Turner, making her second appearance in Madison, finished 18th overall and won the Hat Trick event.
Heading into the off-season, Turner, originally from Australia, is leaving the United States and heading to Canada because her visa expires at the end of this month. Medeiros said that Turner will stay in Canada as she awaits for approval on her 3-year visa application. The couple are hoping that her visa is approved within the next month so she can move back to Vancouver, Washington.
Check out Sevan’s conversation with Medeiros below (we’ve linked to the start of when the two begin chatting about their relationship)…
Regardless of when Turner’s visa application is approved, she will be traveling back to Australia to compete with Tia-Clair Toomey and Brooke Wells at the Down Under Championship in November. With the Down Under Championship organizers continuing to announce top athletes heading down to Australia, could we see Medeiros making the trip to compete there as well? I don’t know about you, but our fingers are crossed!
