The 27-year-old injured his knee after recording his best result this season, with 16th at the Mammoth World Cup last weekend, but is selected on the 2018 Team with the aim he is given the ‘all clear’ from doctors prior to the Games.
Henshaw was Australia's only male competitor in ski slopestyle when the sport made its Olympic debut at the Sochi 2014 Games.
The then 23-year-old entered the Games under an injury cloud but easily qualified for the final. In his first run of the finals, Henshaw fell off the top rail and drifted offline on the second last jump. Despite the mix up, the run was clean, giving him his top score of 80.40, which saw him finish in eighth place.
Since his Olympic debut the Sydney-sider has won silver at the 2015 World Championships and bronze at the 2017 Seiser Alm World Cup.
He placed in the top 20 in all events during the 2016/17 World Cup season, ending with an impressive eighth place finish at the 2017 World Championships in Sierra Nevada, Spain.
He had a slow start to the 2017/18 World Cup season, battling injury and illness, but returned to full health at the start of the year to record a 34th place at Snowmass before qualifying for his first final of the season at Mammoth Mountain, where he finished 16th.
Ski slopestyle will be held at Bokwang Snow Park on Day 9 of the Games (February 18). Find out more about freestyle skiing at the Games HERE.
