In her first event since the 2015 World Championships, Bright won gold with a strong score of 93.50 at the Copper Mountain Nor-Am Cup on Wednesday, and backed up that result with a second place finish at the second event this morning.
The 2010 Olympic Champion has made her intentions clear with Ski and Snowboard Australia that she is aiming to qualify for a fourth Winter Olympic Games at PyeongChang 2018.
The 30-year-old is Australia’s joint most successful Winter Olympian, a title she shares with two-time Olympic medallist mogul skier Dale Begg-Smith.
After placing fifth at her debut Games at Torino 2006, the Cooma-born snowboarder who carried the Australian flag during the 2010 Opening Ceremony, won gold at the Vancouver Games.
Four years later she became the first competitor to compete in three Snowboard events at the same Games, taking on the Slopestyle and Snowboard Cross in addition to the Halfpipe.
At the age of 27, Bright went one better than just making her mark in the history books. After finishing seventh in the Snowboard Slopestyle on Day 2 of the Games, she produced a blistering performance in the Halfpipe on Day 5 to earn the silver medal, before going on to finish equal 18th in the Snowboard Cross, proving she was the most versatile snowboarder at the Games.
Prior to this week, the only major competition Bright has contested Since Sochi is the Kreischberg 2015 World Championships where she placed 6th in the Halfpipe.
If she qualifies for the PyeongChang 2018 Games, Bright will join Colin Coates, Jacqui Cooper, Lydia Lassila and Adrian Costa in the elite group of Australian Olympians who have contested four or more Winter Olympic Games.
