West Australian Lauren Reynolds headed into her debut Games in London ranked inside the top ten in the world and coming off the back of a bronze medal at the test event. She qualified ninth fastest in the seeding run and after finishing 6th and 5th in her opening two semi-final races, a crash in her final run saw her knocked out to finish 15th overall.
A strong 2015 saw Reynolds win the Oceania Championships, finish fifth at the World Championships and claim three top eight finishes in World Cup events including a third in Sweden. At the end of the year Reynolds had a chance to see the 2016 Games track first hand at the Rio test event where she claimed a fourth place finish. After making the final of the 2016 World Championships, where she finished eighth, she headed to her second Games in Rio. She lined up alongside fellow Aussie Caroline Buchanan in her semi-final in Rio as she finished 7th, 6th and 4th in the three races to miss out on the final and claim 11th overall.
