Name: Michaela Davis-Meehan
Having been selected on the Australian Olympic Team I was the second ranked Australian behind Torah Bright in the World Cup Rankings, but not quite high enough to squeeze into the top 24 that went to Sochi. However, I have the technical capability, the plan and the commitment to get me where I want to go. After breaking my back and 2 years of getting everything right, I am still on the Australian National Team with a World Cup spot and very proud of my achievements. I look forward to catching the end of summer and getting back to strength training ready to have a strong 2014-15 season and to perform well at the World Championships in 2015.
When did you start?
I started skiing with my family around the age of 3 and then followed my brother into snowboarding at the age of 9.

Competing at the NZ World Cup and finishing 11th in an Olympic field. Winning the World Rookie Fest. And going back to snowboarding and competing after breaking my back and undergoing 2 surgeries.
