Queensland’s 1st Winter Olympian, Albertville 1992
2002 Salt Lake City, 1000m, Gold Medal – Australia’s 1st Winter Gold & 1994 Lillehammer, 5000m Relay, Bronze Medalist – Australia’s 1st Winter Medal

Speed skater Steven Bradbury created history in Salt Lake City when he became the first Australian to win a Winter Olympic Gold Medal. His remarkable and unlikely victory was achieved after a spectacular final-lap spill took out his four rivals. Bradbury threw his arms up in disbelief and smiled as he crossed the finish line. 

The four-time Olympian hails from sun-drenched Brisbane, and followed his father into the sport. He was a member of the 5000m relay team that won Bronze in Lillehammer – Australia's first Olympic medal. He has helped finance his skating career through his partnership in Revolutionary Boot Company – manufacturers of speed skating boots. 

Among his clients is Apollo Anton Ohno, ironically the favourite for the race Bradbury won. His gold medal win was not entirely as fortuitous as many would believe. Bradbury knew his limitations and also the unpredictable nature of short track racing. Half the battle is staying on your blades, and Bradbury did just that, right when it really counted. Dubbed "the luckiest gold medalist", Bradbury won fans the world over for the honesty and humility he showed after the win. 

He saw his victory as reward not for one race, but for a decade of hard slog that has included more than his share of misfortune. In Montreal, 1994, a race accident led to him being impaled on a skate and creating a cut so extensive he lost 4 litres of blood and required 111 stitches. He was extremely lucky to survive. A training mishap in 2000 broke his neck and forced him to spend six weeks in a halo brace. Steven Bradbury again fought his way back, and two years later that neck was in the headlines again – only this time it was supporting an Olympic Gold Medal. 

He was awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia for his Olympic gold medal win and was also inducted into the Sports Australia Hall of Fame.
