Growing up in the Victorian Alpine Resort of Falls Creek, Britt was born into a mogul skiing environment, with her family passionate mogul skiers, she was always destined to excel at the highest level.
Britt announced her arrival on the world stage as a fifteen-year-old, when she became the second youngest athlete in history to represent Australia at a Winter Olympics and was the youngest competitor at the 2010 Vancouver Games.
Britt made the progression from leading junior to a leading contender on the World Cup stage after becoming the first Australian female to win a mogul skiing World Cup medal, during February 2012 in Deer Valley, UT, USA. During the 2013 season, Britt further added to her medal tally winning bronze at the World Cup event in Lake Placid, NY, USA.
At the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, Britt achieved the highest ever placing by an Australian female mogul skier at the Olympics, narrowly missing out on a medal in fifth place.
In 2015, Britt continued her rise to the top levels of her sport, winning bronze at the World Championships in Kreischberg, Austria. She also added to her career World Cup medal tally with a bronze in the dual moguls in Deer Valley, UT, USA.
Britt narrowly missed out on qualifying for the top-6 medal final at the 2016 Benchmark Event (BME)/World Cup in Deer Valley, UT, USA, finishing in eighth place.
The 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, Korea, will be the third for Britt, and she will no doubt be one to watch for the podium.
