Growing up in the Australia’s Victorian alpine resort of Falls Creek, Cox was born into a mogul skiing environment, with her family passionate about mogul skiing. Cox journey as an athlete begun back in 2004 when she competed in her first FIS competition at Mt. Buller. Six years later at the age of 15 Cox made her World Cup debut at Deer Valley and just a couple weeks later she became the youngest athlete to compete at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
Since then, Cox has continued to improve, winning Australia’s first ever female World Cup top-3 finish on the infamous Champion Run at Deer Valley. In 2015 Cox snagged a bronze medal at the World Championships in Kreischberg.
Without a doubt her real breakout moment came in 2016/17 season when she took seven victories and two third place finishes to win the moguls as well as the overall freestyle World Cup titles, thus becoming the first Australian women to win the crystal globe in moguls. Finally she capped off a highly successful 2016/17 campaign by winning the World Championship title in Sierra Nevada.
Brittany Cox’s career almost came to a premature end in 2019 after breaking six ribs and a collarbone in a terrifying crash in China. Thankfully after a long and intense rehabilitation, Cox was able to make her way back on tour and into Australia’s roster for her fourth Olympic Winter Games in Beijing, where she qualified into super-final.
On behalf of the entire FIS Freestyle family, we would like to thank Brittney for an outstanding career and wish her the best of luck for the future projects.
