Jakara Anthony

Mogul Skier
HOMETOWN
Barwon Heads, Victoria
RESIDES
Barwon Heads, Victoria

At 16, Jakara broke out onto the World Cup scene – a huge stepping stone for the girl who has competed most her life, never attending a full school year as term 3 was always for skiing in the Aussie winter.

Jakara grew up looking to motivators in her sport like Hannah Kearney, a retired US freestyle Mogul skier. The best of her time, Kearney won a crazy amount of World Cups in a row. Jakara calls her ‘a real powerhouse, an amazing skier’ and an inspiration to one of Australia’s most promising up and coming talents.  Watching Kearney at the 2010 Olympics and even getting to compete at one of the same events as her idol just before she retired, have been really special moments for Jakara. 

Currently training under Peter McNeil at the New South Wales Institute of Sport, Jakara grew up skiing at Mount Buller when Pete used to coach there so they have worked together since she was a little tacker. Jakara says that coaching bond has been something that has worked to the best of her advantage and is something she really credits with progressing her skiing. 

Despite a lifetime of competition, it wasn't something she thought was going to happen at the time, but her first Deer Valley World Cup will always be etched in her mind, where she knocked out a career best result.

One of only two Australian women to qualify – the other being no less than the current world number one – Jakara came in 13th with a personal best score of 72.26, topping her previous PB (achieved the week before) at the Calgary World cup. 

Making her move through the ranks and now a regular on the World Cup circuit at only 19 years of age, she is definitely one to watch.  She is one of the two female competitors in her sport to make it to the Games and a member of the highly successful Australian Moguls team for Pyeongchang.

“We’re the best we’ve ever being right now with Brit Cox and Matt Graham - and our team just has the best season ever.”
For those who don't know what Mogul skiing is, the really basic version is it's a series of like little bumps in the snow that alternate left and right. And then there’s two jumps in the run.

Making her first Olympic appearance at PyeongChang, we are sure that Jakara has many epic moments ahead of her – in the near and distant future.
