Greta Small: Winter Olympian

At the young age of just 21, Greta Small has already become Australia's top female Alpine Skier. 

Her love of skiing started at the ripe age of 2yrs old where she started the sport on two plastic skis at her hometown resort, here at Mt Hotham.

Greta has built an incredible career and her feats have not gone unnoticed. In 2012, she was asked to be the Australian Flag bearer at the Winter Youth Olympics in Austria where she notched up 7th place in both Slalom and Giant Slalom.

Building upon her Youth Olympics experience, Greta went on to win the 2013 Giant Slalom Far East Cup in Korea. That same year she also delivered a silver medal in the Junior World Championships in Canada.

Small's career highlight to date has been competing in the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games at just 18 years old. At the games she competed in five disciplines and was the youngest competitor in her field. 

Greta's sights are now set on her potential second Olympic Games in Pyeong Chang, February 2018.
