Brodie's Story

Summers made his Olympic debut in 2014 after he produced two strong World Cup results just prior to the Sochi Games. Summers qualified best of the three Australians for Final 1 at Sochi, but then missed out on a spot in Final 2 by 0.1 of a point. Needing a top-12 finish to progress, Summers finished his debut Olympic campaign 13th. 

Summers was the best placed Australian male at the 2017 World Championships in Sierra Nevada, Spain, narrowly missing out on a top-10 finish, placing 11th in an extremely competitive field.

After qualifying for his second Games at PyeongChang 2018, Summers ruptured his ACL in September 2017 and undertook a relentless rehab program to give him the best shot at a second Games experience. Unfortunately, in the final training session at PyeongChang, he flared up his knee injury and it was decided he would not line up for the event.

The skier from Melbourne started mogul skiing as a teenager and had his break-through season in 2013 when he posted two top-10 performances at the World Ski Championships in Voss, Norway. The 2013/14 season was his first full time year on the World Cup circuit. After the Sochi Games he took the following World Cup season off due to a back injury.
