Rising Australian biathlon star and Winter Youth Olympian Darcie Morton is pushing hard to represent Australia at the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games.
Rohan Chapman-Davies represented Australia in his first international moguls event in 2008 as a 16-year-old. Now, almost 10 years later and ranked in the top 30 in the world, the skier from Mosman, NSW is looking to make his Olympic debut in 2018.
The Australian winter season is officially underway with resorts expected to open early after a blast of snow and dropping temperatures but Australia’s female Ski Cross supremo Sami Kennedy-Sim is holding back from a quick trip to the snowy ranges this weekend – despite the urge to do so.
After a break through 2016/17 season where he contested his first World Cup tour and qualified for the World Championships, mogul skiier James Matheson is looking to qualify for his debut Olympic Games at PyeongChang 2018.
