Athlete Biography

Triple Olympian Holly Crawford made her Games debut at the Torino Winter Olympics in 2006, finishing 18th in the Snowboard Halfpipe. Four years on, Crawford jumped up the standings, finishing eighth in the same event at the Vancouver 2010 Games. Unfortunately she could not improve on that result at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, where she competed under an injury cloud and finished 26th. 

Crawford has had a successful, albeit injury-hampered career. Crawford claimed silver at the 2009 World Championships in Korea- Australia's first Snowboard Halfpipe World Championship medal. She went on to win the World Championship crown in 2011, and claim another silver medal in 2013. 

Crawford delivered Australia's a podium finish - silver - at the Sochi Olympic test event in 2013. But in doing so she aggravated a longstanding injury to her rib cage cartilage. She went into the Sochi Games carrying injuries from a crash three weeks before the Games where she broke her left wrist, banged her knee and cracked some ribs.
