Britt Cox is an Australian freestyle skier that competes in the mogul skiing discipline. She was selected to her fourth Australian Olympic team for the Beijing 2022 Winter Games.

The moguls skier became Australia’s youngest winter Olympian since 1960 when she made her debut in Vancouver. As Australia’s second-only youngest athlete to represent Australia in Winter Games history, she was the youngest competitor at the 2010 Games.

In 2012, Britt continued her record-breaking achievements by becoming the first Australian woman to medal at a moguls world cup, securing a bronze medal in Deer Valley, USA. She then repeated the result in Lake Placid, 2013, and earned her qualification into her second Olympic Games for the 2014 Sochi Winter Games where she finished in fifth place – the highest ever placing by an Australian female mogul skier at the Olympics.

By early 2015, Britt had secured an additional two world cup bronze medals, one of which was earned at the World Ski Championships in another first for Australia.

The 2016/17 Moguls World Cup season is hailed as one of Britt’s most successful seasons to date with the dual-Olympian having won gold in seven of the 11 World Cup events and earning a podium finish 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).

In March 2017, just two weeks after having been awarded the Crystal Globe, Britt became Australia’s first-ever moguls skiing World Champion and one of Australia’s most successful winter athletes of all time when she won gold in Sierra Nevada, Spain.

With a third-place world ranking, Britt headed to her third Winter Olympic Games in 2018 after winning two world cup events in Ruka, Finland, and Calgary, Canada. In PyeongChang, the moguls skier matched her previous best Olympic result to finish fifth in the Olympic final.

The Olympian began the 2018/19 season in great form, returning to the podium with a bronze medal at the world cup in Ruka, Finland. The successful start of the season however quickly overshadowed by an unfortunate crash on her second day of competition in Thaiwoo which saw Britt lose consciousness and sustain serious injuries to her ribs and collarbone. Her injuries required surgery and ruled her out of the remaining events for the 2019/20 world cup season.

Returning to competition in 2020, Britt finished 11th at the opening world cup event of the 2020/21 season in Ruka, Finland.

At the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics, Britt joined rare air as just the second mogul athlete to be selected for her fourth Olympic Team and just six other Australians to ever compete at four or more Winter Games. Competing in the women’s moguls, Britt finished her 2022 Olympic campaign in 14th.
