Which Aussies could get a medal at the Winter Olympics?

Steven Bradbury’s historic short track speed skating win in 2002 made Australia the only team in the Southern Hemisphere to win a gold medal (at the time anyway). Since their first inclusion in the games, Australia has won 15 medals, with five of them being gold.

Snowboarder Scotty James will be eyeing down the gold as he sits at number one in the world halfpipe, while Tahli Gill and Dean Hewitt will look to take the mixed doubles curling tournament by storm. Meanwhile Britteny Cox will fly to Beijing to go for gold in the mogul skiing, in what will be her fourth Winter Olympics.
