Belle Brockhoff

Snowboard Cross
HOMETOWN
Mt Buller, Vic, Aus
RESIDES
Mornington, Vic, Aus

Belle’s first introduction to snow was on a pair of skis at age 3. It wasn’t until she was 10 that she got her first go at a snowboard. Just three weeks after standing on the board Belle won her first Snowboard Interschools Nationals, snowboarding was just something that came naturally to her. A love of snow sports is something that runs deep within the Brockhoff blood line. Belle’s family has a long association with the snow, her uncle Peter Brockhoff represented Australia at the 1960 and 1964 Winter Olympic Games. Her grandfather Harold Brockhoff was one of the original pioneers of Mount Buller and another relative, Joyce Brockhoff, has a run named in her honour at Mount Hotham.

As a kid Belle competed in about every discipline she could think of, Alpine GS & SL, Skier-cross, Moguls, Nordic classic and skate, Boarder Cross and Snowboard GS & SL. For the young Aussie it was SBX that stood head and shoulders above the rest. The physicality of bumping and grappling for position, teamed up with the high speeds and big airs was just irresistible to the competitive Brockhoff. Belle competed in her first full World Cup circuit in 2012/13. She became the first Australian woman to win a Snowboard Cross World Cup medal when she finished third in Montafon, Austria.

Belle competed in the 2014 Winter Olympic Games at Sochi, Russia where she finished 8th overall. This was the most successful snowboard cross result for the Australian team at the 2014 Games.

Most recently in the 2016-17 season, Belle starred in the opening World Cup event in Austria with her second World Cup victory. Belle also triumphed at the World Cup in Bulgaria, living up to expectation with strong time trials and a convincing win in the final. 

With just over a year out rom the next Winter Olympics, Belle is in fine form and we're looking forward to seeing some great results from her in Pyeongchang.
