Short track speed skater Pierre Boda of Australia in action at the 2014 Winter Olympics

Athlete Biography

Pierre Boda was 22 when he made his Olympic debut at the Sochi 2014 Olympics, competing in the men’s 500m Short Track Speed Skating event. Boda put together a solid race but just wasn’t quite able to be in the first two over the line, finishing 30th overall.

Boda qualified for the Sochi Games after a tense ‘best of three’ skate-off with his teammate and friend Andy Jung. With one race a piece, Boda took out the third in dramatic style after Jung crashed and was penalised.
