At the age of 19, Matt Graham made his Olympic debut in Moguls at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games. Graham came agonisingly close to making the super-final in Sochi, finishing just 0.01 of a point behind American Patrick Deneen in Final 2, placing him seventh, one position short of a super-final entry.
Graham had enjoyed a strong lead up to Sochi, finishing fourth at the 2013 World Championships in Voss, Norway and seventh at the Sochi Test Event.
Hailing from Gosford on the NSW Central Coast, Graham joined the Perisher Winter Sports Club Moguls program at the young age of six with his three siblings. He tried all aspects of skiing but Moguls was his favourite. As a junior in 2009 he got the opportunity to train with his hero Dale Begg- Smith and the pair competed together in Sochi.
Graham had an impressive 2016/2017 World Cup season, finishing third in the overall world rankings. After standing on the dais at four World Cup events during the season, including winning gold in Calgary in January, Graham placed 14th at the 2017 Sierra Nevada World Championships in March.
