Mogul skier Britt Cox was the youngest athlete at the Vancouver Games when she made her Olympic debut in 2010. At 15 years of age, Cox was also Australia’s youngest Winter Olympian since 14-year-old Aileen Nash competed in Figure Skating at the 1960 Games in Squaw Valley. Cox placed 23rd in Canada.
Four years later and 19-years-old Cox proved her mettle on the Sochi slopes. Now a leader in the Australian women’s moguls contingent, Cox fought hard to get into the six-woman super-final, ending her Sochi campaign in an impressive fifth place.
The 2016/2017 Moguls World Cup season was Cox's most successful season to date. Cox won gold in seven of the 11 World Cup events of the season and podiumed at two other events. She was awarded the women’s FIS Freestyle Skiing Crystal Globe, which is awarded to the freestyle skier who has accumulated the most points in any of the freestyle skiing disciplines (moguls, aerials, ski cross, slopestyle, halfpipe and big air).
Two weeks after she was awarded the Crystal Globe, Cox became Australia’s first ever moguls skiing World Champion when she took out the title in Sierra Nevada, Spain in March 2017, making her one of Australia’s most successful winter athletes of all time. She was awarded the 2017 Snowsports Australia Athlete of the Year, shared with snowboard halfpipe World Champion Scotty James.
At the age of 23, Cox headed into her third Olympic Games at PyeongChang 2018 as the third ranked mogul skier. Cox easily qualified through to the 6-skier Super Final with the second highest score in Final 2, before scoring 75.08 to claim fifth place overall, just behind her fellow Aussie Teammate Jakara Anthony who claimed fourth.
