Britteny Cox - Mogul Skiing

From being the youngest competitor at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games to Australia's first female World Cup medallist in mogul skiing in 2012, Britt Cox seems intent on breaking the mould.

Britt Grew up skiing in Falls Creek, Victoria competing in both alpine and mogul skiing events but she loved the excitement of jumping and the technical skills involved in mogul skiing and it was this that led her to pursue her passion for Mogul Skiing. 

At just 15 years of age, she became Australia’s youngest winter Olympian since 1960, and at 17 she has again broken another record, claiming bronze in mogul skiing at the 2012 Deer Valley World Cup. Britt displays an outstanding work ethic and singular dedication for her sport. She approaches each training session with intensity and enthusiasm, and is conscious to make each session her best.

Britt attended the Falls Creek and Mount Beauty Primary School and then the Scots school Albury from years 7-10. Britt continues her high school education through the Karabar Distance Education Center, which has assisted her in her studies while she is travelling. Britt now aims to complete her HSC over 2 years with the Karabar Distance Education Center, which allows her to continue her schooling during long international training camps and competition.

Cox created history when she became the first Australian to win a moguls skiing world crown. The historic event took place in Sierra Nevada, Spain, in early 2017.

As at January 2018, Britt is the second youngest athlete to represent Australia in winter games history. She started contesting in her first Mogul race when just eights old..

When considering the stature of an athlete or for that matter any person, I set great store in certain qualities which I believe to be essential in addition to skill. They are that the person conducts his of her life with dignity, with integrity, courage, and perhaps most of all, with modesty. These virtues are totally compatible with pride, ambition, and competitiveness.
