Australia at the Winter Universiade

Australia's history in the Winter Universiade dates back to 1985 and has seen Australian student-athletes compete in 11 of the last 25 events with unbroken involvement since 1991.


Australia's best ever result at a Winter Universiade is two silver medals by Amber Arazny (Snowboard: Ladies' Slopestyle) and Joss McAlpine (Snowboard: Men's Big Air) in Almaty, Kazakhstan in 2017. Alexei Almoukov won a bronze medal in the men's 12.5km pursuit (Biathlon) in Trentino, Italy in 2013. With a growing winter sport culture in Australia, this result will aim to be beaten at the 2019 Winter Universiade in Krasnoyarsk, Russia.
