The great achievements of the talented ski champion
Pullin was born and raised in Mansfield with the Mount Buller ski area right on the doorstep. At the age of 3, Pullin began to get acquainted with skateboards and was advised by his parents to choose skiing as a professional road at the age of 8.
In the 2012-13 season, Alex Pullin created history, becoming Australia’s first winter sportsman to successfully defend the world championship title. For this achievement, he was awarded the 2013 Best Athlete Association by the Ski and Snowboard Association of Australia.
In the 2015-16 season, Pullin won a World Cup gold medal at a tournament held in Baqueira Beret, Spain. Along with teammate Belle Brockhoff winning the women’s event, Pullin helped Australia win gold for both men and women in the arena for the first time.
In the 2017-18 season, Pullin remained at the peak and won the gold medal double at the World Cup in Argentina. He was once again awarded the title of Australia’s best sports athlete when ranked 9th at the Snowboard Cross World Championships.
Alex Pullin was once a world champion
Dominating world titles, the goal Pullin wants to conquer is Olympic. In 2014, he was honored to hold the flag for the Australian sports delegation at the opening of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Unfortunately, in this tournament, Pullin was eliminated in the quarterfinals.
In 2018, Pullin continued to conquer the golden dream of the Olympics, but he finished only in sixth place. Olympic is a dream unfinished on the career path of Pullin.
The pain stays
