Matt Graham

Mogul Skier
HOMETOWN
Gosford, NSW
RESIDES
Gosford, NSW

Skiing since he was 7, Matt knew from pretty early that Moguls was his thing.

“I loved how spontaneous and fast-paced the sport is and how you just get everything. It’s just kind of every part of skiing kind of jammed into one little 25 second run.”

Jumping and going fast were the drawcard, but Matt’s love for the technical side of his sport has also been a big factor in his success and it will serve him well in South Korea. 

The Moguls bug hit Matt hard and fast at the ripe old age of 8. In fact the way he recalls it, he woke up one day and that was it.  

“I remember just waking up…  And mum was like, “Alright Matt, we have to go to sailing. And I was just like… kind of half dazed and I just said “Oh, I just want to be the best skier in the world.”

A big turning point for Matt was watching the 2006 Winter Olympics with Dale Begg-Smith bringing home the gold for Australia. Watching a fellow Aussie do that paved the path for Matt and a lot of his team mates to follow in his footsteps. 

Selected to the New South Wales Institute of Sport at 12 years of age, Matt was skiing and training with guys 5 to 10 years older than him from early on, which kept him driving forward.

His world cup rookie year just before the Vancouver Olympics in 2010 and managed to finish 27th in day 2 of the competition; which met the individual qualification for the games. At just 15 years of age all of a sudden, he was backup man for the team. In the end it wasn’t to be but 4 years later Matt was securely on the team for Sochi, something he remembers as a privilege and a highlight. 

With 2 World Cup victories under his belt – whatever he is doing it working. 

“… Getting those two victories in the last two seasons have been pretty special. You know, my first one was… I wouldn't say it was unexpected, but its something I’d never forget.

My second victory this past season in Calgary in January 2017, that was special; not only for myself but for Britt Cox, we won at the same event. And it was pretty special to, stand on the top step with Britt, after training together since we were 13 years old. “

The team mates are live like brothers and sisters, training throughout the year. With his training buddy now the top dog in her field, Matt is keen to bring home the double again.
