Rose Wetzel

Seattle, WA

Rose Wetzel brings her fun, passionate, and positive personality to one of the most grueling and demanding sports in the world. Currently ranked the #1 female in the Spartan Race point series and a two-time American Ninja Warrior finalist, she began her journey in Track & Field, winning two state championships in the 800m and becoming a Junior All-American at Georgetown University. In 2013, she ran her first ever obstacle race and blazed a trail ever since — it’s this combination of new challenges, as well as the community of passionate, driven athletes, that inspires Rose to set new heights.

My Hero:

Malala Yousafzai, an activist for female education and the youngest-ever Nobel Prize winner. She had the courage to stand up for what she truly believed despite her incredible obstacles.

Proudest moment:

I have a lot of athletic accomplishments, but I’m most proud when I choose to work through negative feelings and choose to live a joyful life. It takes work and a lot of self-awareness to choose to forgive someone instead of continuing to be mad. But those moments when I choose the higher ground is when I’m most proud of myself and that’s something I can work on my entire life.
