We stand corrected. After following the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics coverage on channel 7, we have learned that there is an athlete on the Aussie team who is Asian Australian – its 29 year old Belle Brockhoff who is competing in the snowboard cross competition.
Brockhoff performed well today in the quarter and semi finals with a few close shaves, and ended up being 1 of 4 who qualified for the finals, but it was America’s Lindsey Jacobellis who took the Gold. Brockhoff came out 4th, which is a very good rank, and she has the mixed team event coming up where Australia is world champions.
Keep an eye out for her in the mixed team snowboard cross event starting on Saturday! Good luck Belle!
