Olympic Winter Games Attended
Hailing from Jindabyne, NSW, the NSWIS rider made his World Cup debut at the Olympic test event in Bokwang, Korea, in February 2016, finishing in 20th place.
At the opening World Cup of the 2017-2018 season, Dickson recorded a personal best 12th place in Cerro Catedral, Argentina.
Unfortunately Dickson just missed out on qualification to the Australian team for the 2018 PyeongChang Olympic Winter Games, but showed plenty of promise to be offered a contract with the Olympic Winter Institute ahead of the 2018-2019 World Cup season.
Dickson's best result in the 2018-2019 World Cup season came in the Spanish resort of Baqueira Beret, where he placed 22nd.
At the final event of the 2019-2020 season, Dickson had a breakthrough performance recording the first World Cup podium of his career, claiming bronze in Veysonnaz, Switzerland.
The highlight for Dickson in the 2020-2021 season was an eighth place semi-final result at the World Cup in Bakuriani, Georgia. The result ensured Dickson a place at the World Cup final, where he placed 17th and finished the season ranked 25th on the standings.
In the 2021-2022 World Cup season, Dickson had a great weekend at the World Cup event in Krasnoyarsk, Russia, with a confidence boosting top-8 semi final performances on both days of competition.
Dickson will make his Olympic Winter Games debut in Beijing.
