Six months after knee surgery, Brodie Summers will wear the green and gold at his second Olympics at PyeongChang 2018. After a freak accident at Mt Buller in September 2017 which saw him rupture his ACL, 24-year-old Summers undertook a relentless rehab program, which will see him return to competition at Bokwang Snow park in February.
Summers made his Olympic debut in 2014 after he produced two strong World Cup results just prior to the Sochi Games. Summers qualified best of the three Australians for Final 1 at Sochi, but then missed out on a spot in Final 2 by 0.1 of a point. Needing a top-12 finish to progress, Summers finished his debut Olympic campaign 13th.
Summers ended the 2016/2017 World Cup series ranked eighth in the world, having podiumed twice in the season, winning silver at the World Cup in Thaiwoo and bronze in dual moguls in Deer Valley. The 23-year-old was the best placed Australian male at the 2017 World Championships in Sierra Nevada, Spain, narrowly missing out on a top-10 finish, placing 11th in an extremely competitive field.
The skier from Melbourne started mogul skiing as a teenager and had his break-through season in 2013 when he posted two top-10 performances at the World Ski Championships in Voss, Norway. The 2013/14 season was his first full time year on the World Cup circuit. After the Sochi Games he took the following World Cup season off due to a back injury.
