Celeste Dixon - Ninja Warrior

My name’s Celeste Dixon and I’m known for being on all 5 seasons of Australian Ninja Warrior. Along with 5 other females, I made it up the warped wall to make history. I love being a ninja as it’s something that I find completely fun yet challenging – even more so with each passing season.

I also love aerial arts, gymnastics and climbing. I’ve really gotten into climbing recently as it’s helped a lot with grip strength.

I love being upside down hanging from a bar or in a handstand.

Being active is probably what people know me for. I never really have “down” time and I get bored verrrrry easily.

I absolutely hate being injured but getting older it’s becoming harder to avoid. I do like trying to push the boundaries as to how far I can physically take my body with training.


My favourite food to fuel me as an Athlete 

I absolutely love broccoli. I’m a massive fan of veggies.

My favourite movie

Either the original Charlie and the Chocolate Factory or Love Actually

My favourite colours 

Fluro green, purple, blue
