Sochi Olympics 2014 - Australian Athletes

NZ Snow Tours sends out a HUGE congratulations to everyone who made the Australian Olympic Team!

Australia has a much larger winter Olympic team for the Games than New Zealand, with a role totaling Sixty. 42 of them are skiers and snowboarders with many already holding world champion titles. They are surely going to put up a good fight in Sochi!

There a couple of stand outs that I must mention before I introduce the rest of the skiers and snowboarders. The first one being snowboarder Torah Bright. Not only is Torah the 2010 Olympic gold medalist for pipe, this year she is competing in 3 snowboarding disciplines, half pipe, snowboarder cross and slopestyle. Awesome!

The second one to note, is skier Greta Small who has qualified and will compete in all five skiing events the Downhill, Giant Slalom, Slalom, Super Combined & Super G. That will make her few weeks at the games a busy one!

Right now onto the rest of the team! Huge congratulations to all you and I have no doubt well deserved!
