On September 27, 2012, Gray competed in the 2012 Women's World Wrestling Championships in Edmonton, Canada. In her first match against Dzhanan Manolova of Bulgaria, Adeline came out a little slow, then exploded with a great 3 point throw and won the 1st period 3-0. In the second period, she took Manolova down and turned her in a leg lace for another point, then she just defended the rest of the period for a 2-0 win. In the next round, she faced off against Yoshiko Inoue of Japan, the only one to score on Adeline. Inoue scored first in the first period but Adeline came back and scored on a push out to secure the 1st period win. In the second period, Adeline looked in control with her under hooks, scoring a throw-by and getting her leg lace for a 3-0 win. In the Semi-Finals against Kaur Navjot of India, she looked very confident and showed no fear and dominated Navjot from the start. Adeline secured her second takedown and controlled her legs standing tilts to a stack for the pin.
In the Finals, Gray faced off against the 2012 Jr World Champion, Dorothy Yeats of Canada, only 19 years old and the crowd favorite. Adeline came out very confident and took it to Yeats, throwing her for 3 points and scoring in another takedown to win the 1st period 4-0. In the second period, Adeline stayed in control and secured a takedown late in the period, then put Yeats on her back with her signature arm-bar-wing and pinned her with 4 seconds left for a dominating win.
Gray competed in the 75 kg event at the 2016 Summer Olympics, where she won her first match against Andrea Olaya Gutierrez of Colombia, but lost her quarterfinal match against Vasilisa Marzaliuk of Belarus.
Gray spent the 2017 season recuperating from injuries, missing the 2017 World Championships.
Gray is the first female wrestler to have her own signature shoe. The ASICS Aggressor 3 L.E. Adeline Gray wrestling shoe is a special edition signature shoe designed by Adeline.
Gray is the daughter of George and Donna Gray, and has three sisters.
Outside of competing, Gray has been wrestling the bigger issues of sexism, and promoting equal recognition and participation on the elite levels, including Olympic and collegiate level wrestling.
