She graduated from Turi Uhisgumnaasium High School in Estonia and then enrolled at Florida University in 2012 – her subject matter and details of graduation are unknown.
Grete is an athlete in the sport of heptathlon in Estonia, who participated in several international competitions, including the World Junior Championships and the European U23 Championships. She competed in the 2010 World Championships in Moncton, Canada, racking up 5705 points to finish in 4th place, a few points away from the bronze medal. In 2012, she again represented Estonia at the 2012 World Junior Championships in Barcelona, Spain, but unfortunately was ranked 9e with 5517 points.
During her time on the Florida state athletics team, she was selected to the second team in All-America after 11e at the National Collegiate Athletic Association Outdoors.
In 2015, she qualified to represent her country at the European U23 Championships in Tallinn, Estonia, finishing in 5e place with 5813 points.
She married Robert Griffin III on March 12, 2018 in a lavish wedding ceremony in Miami, Florida with about 100 guests. Her family witnessed the extravagant festivities with what they call a square room literally made of hanging crystals in the center of the ceremony location.
They also had a special lightbox where you could make your own music video, similar to the one used at the Met Gala. Their 8-month-old daughter, Gloria, wore an adorable dress to match her mother’s beautiful wedding dress.
Grete met Robert through the popular social media app Instagram. They got engaged in May 2017. Little else is known about their dating timeline as Robert was still married to his first wife at the time but had been separated for several months. It wasn’t until August 2016 that they were seen holding hands together in public, as reported by the New York Daily News, and a month later he started posting about her on his Instagram account; Grete’s Instagram account was still private at the time.
They welcomed another baby girlGameya, on September 7, 2019, and the family currently resides in Baltimore, Maryland.
Who is Robert Griffin III?
Robert Lee “RG3” Griffin III was born on February 12, 1990 in Okinawa, Japan to parents Robert Griffin Jr. and Jacqueline Ross – his parents were both US Army sergeants stationed in Japan at the time. When they returned to the US, they were stationed at Fort Lewis in Tacoma, Washington, and then assigned to New Orleans, Louisiana. In 1997, his parents retired from the military and settled permanently in Copperas Cove, Texas.
Robert was a star in three different sports at Copperas Cove High School. Although he excelled in basketball, soccer, and track and field, it was football that paved the way for his college recruiting. Several universities sought him out to play for them, including Houston, Stanford, Illinois, and Washington State. Initially, he wanted to play for Houston, but when the head coach transferred to Baylor University, he decided to join him. Another reason for his decision was the university’s athletics program.
His rookie year with the Baylor Bears football team was a success, and he was named Offensive Freshman of the Year in the Big 12 Conference in 2008.
His achievements during his college days were remarkable. Even if his team didn’t make it to the national championship, he ended his college football career by winning the Heisman trophy and making history by being the first Baylor player to win it, as well as the first player to miss the national championship game since Tim Tebow in 2007. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in political science in 2010 and continued his studies for a master’s degree in communications the following year.
Robert’s track and field record was also noteworthy. He won the 400-meter hurdles in the NCAA Midwest Regional Championship, as well as the Big 12 Conference Championship. He even qualified to participate in the Olympic trials but only advanced to the semifinals.
In 2012, he entered the NFL Draft and was the Washington Redskins’ second overall pick.
He wore a number 10 jersey and his Griffin III on the back, making him the first professional player in the four major sports to use a Roman numeral by his name. His rookie season was a huge success, earning him the 2012 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year title and being selected to the Pro Football Writers Association (PFWA) All-Rookie Team. He also had a chance to be included in the 2013 All-Star Pro Bowl, but injuries prevented him from making it.
The following season did not go well. Robert failed to duplicate his rookie performance and his not-so-great stats continued into the following season. It didn’t help that he kept getting injured and even suffered a concussion in 2015; the Redskins had no choice but to release him to the Cleveland Browns in 2016, on a $15 million two-year contract.
He became the team’s starting quarterback, but was injured again and had to be sidelined. After one season, he was released by the Browns and became a free agent.
In 2018, he signed a one-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens and was the backup quarterback for the team. He performed well during the season and so his contract was extended for a further two years, and he is currently doing great with the team.
Robert was previously married to Rebecca Liddicoat, a college friend and fellow Baylor student in 2013. They had a daughter in 2015, but the marriage broke up and in 2016 Robert filed for divorce.
- Grete should have been training for the 2020 Olympicsbut was sidelined again when she gave birth to their second child.
- Grete was once labeled a house-eater by some fans because they believed she was the reason Robert’s first marriage failed, but it was revealed that Robert had been separated from his first wife for several months before she was photographed. However, she was the reason he filed for divorce, as he wanted to be single and pursue her without legal issues. His first wife was reportedly taken aback by the divorce and hoped to reconcile with him.
- Grete’s name was tattooed on Robert’s arm, and she later answered her by putting his name on her arm as well.
