Belle Brockhoff joins OMP!
We are very excited to announce that Australian Olympic Snowboarder, Belle Brockhoff, has joined the OMP Sports Management Team.
After learning to ski at the age of 3, Belle decided to pick up the snowboard at 10 and was winning Australian Interschool Snowboard titles in that same year. In 2010, at 17, Belle competed in her first World Cup event finishing in 36th place and since switching to Boardercross in 2012, she has been establishing herself as one of the leading women in Snowboard Cross.
A third place finish at the 2012 SBX World Cup in Montafon, Austria made Belle the first Australian female to win a medal at a World Cup and helped her achieve 9th position in the Overall World Cup Standings of 2012/2013. In 2014, Belle brilliantly represented Australia at the Sochi Winter Olympics but an unlucky fall in the semi-final lead to an 8th placing, however this was still the most successful snowboard cross result for Australia. She backed up this strong result by finishing in 5th place in the Overall World Cup Standings of 2014/2015 and now seems right on the cusp of a top 3 world ranking and a podium finish.
It is little wonder that Belle has displayed such a passion and talent for Snowboarding with a family connection to snow sport in Australia that stretches back for generations. Belle’s uncle, Peter Brockhoff competed in Alpine Skiing at the 1960 and 1964 Winter Olympics, her grandfather Harold Brockhoff was one of the original pioneers of Mt Buller and her great aunt, Joyce Brockhoff has a run named in her honour at Mt Hotham in recognition of her work promoting the place of women in snow sports.
We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to assist and support Belle for the rest of her career and beyond. At just 22 years of age, we believe Belle will have a really strong impact in the sport and we can’t wait to work with her.
