Athlete Biography

Teenager Greta Small flew the flag for Australia in every event on the women’s Alpine program at Sochi 2014. She landed Australia’s best Alpine result of the Games when she placed 15th in her first event, the Super Combined. At 18 years of age, Small was the second youngest in the field by eight days. Racing from Day 3 through to Day 14, Small added a 29th in Downhill, 31st in Slalom and 41st in Giant Slalom to her impressive Olympic tally. Unfortunately she made a costly mistake in the Super-G, missed a gate and recorded a DNF. At the end of the monster campaign, Small rated holding first place for a short time in the Super Combined as her best moment in Sochi.

Before her successful Sochi campaign, Small competed in the inaugural Winter Youth Olympics in Innsbruck, Austria in 2012. Small, then 16, was Australia’s Opening Ceremony Flagbearer and finished seventh in both the Giant Slalom and Super-G and 13th in both the Slalom and Super Combined.
