This is Brockhoff’s first-ever gold medal in the snowboard cross mixed teams event, and probably not her last.
Belle Brockhoff is one of those snowboarders who are on the rise. She has been steadily improving since the beginning of her career when she appeared first at the 2013 world championships and finished 13th.
By obtaining better rankings at the major championships, she also finished 4th in the solo snowboard cross event at the 2021 world championships, she is becoming an unavoidable opponent and will surely be counted on at the next Winter Olympic Games to be held in Beijing in 2022.
After lesbian speed skater Brittany Bowe, here is a new LGBTQ female athlete who has distinguished herself during these world championships. Congratulations!
