Katya Crema

Ski Cross
HOMETOWN
Mt Buller, Vic.
RESIDES
Melbourne, Vic, Aus

Kat began skiing at just three years of age. She quickly moved through the ranks as a junior picking up Victorian championships and Australian national titles along the way. After competing twice at the World Children’s Championships in Italy 2002-2003 she graduated to the FIS racing circuit. In 2005 Katya took out the FIS Australian National Championships, she did so again for the following two years and a fourth in 2009 after returning from injury. During these years she also competed in the World Junior Championships in Flachau, Austria, and Formigal, Spain.

When Crema’s senior career kicked off she was also competing in Alpine events, however the results she was achieving internationally in Ski cross soon made that her sole focus. Her season best of 11th place in the World Cup in Sierra Nevada, Spain, put her into 18th place on the overall world cup standings. Unfortunately her season came to a crashing halt when she blew her ACL in a bad crash at the in Meiringen, Switzerland. She underwent a full knee reconstruction and two further knee ops to get it corrected. But like all good athletes the injury just made her more focused on reaching her dreams. She recovered on time to book her spot on the Aussie team for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games, being a part of the first ever group to compete in Ski Cross at an Olympic Games. She finished in 15th place, a great result for the first-time Olympian. Katya’s form got even better leading in the lead up to Sochi and posted world ranking of 16th. At the Sochi games she put in a magnificent performance to finish 7th in the Ski Cross event. It was Australia’s best ever Olympic female result in the discipline, and the highlight of her career so far.

Katya is a Graduate of Melbourne University with a high distinction average in the Bachelor of Environments, major in Architecture and is currently completing her Masters of Property.

We believe with her ability and dedication to the sport there is a lot more highlights to come.
