Australian Winter Olympic team for PyeongChang2018

Australia's Olympic dream team scored an additional five athletes, including XTM athlete Anton Grimus.

The team is now finalised after a reallocation of quota spots allowed five more athletes selection for next month's Winter Games.

The team of 50 is made up of 19 rookies, 24 dual Olympians, five triple Olympians, a four time Olympian and Lydia Lassilla, who will make her fifth Olympic appearance. 

Anton Grimus will back up his Sochi appearance on the Australian Ski Cross team, joining Sami Kennedy-Sim. James Matheson will join the six- strong Mogul team. Harry Laidlaw will be the third alpine skiier to join the Australian team, with both he and Matheson making their Olympic debut at Pyeongchang. 2014 Olympian Aimee Watson and debutant Casey Wright also gained selection in the reallocation, rounding out the cross country team.

The Winter Games will kick off on 9 February in PyeongChang with the Aussie mogul athletes the first to compete.
