Jakara Anthony is an Australian freestyle skier and Olympic gold medalist. She competed in the 2018 Winter Olympics, finishing 4th, the best ever result for an Australian female mogul skier. Anthony won the Women's Moguls event at the 2022 Winter Olympics. At the 2019 World Ski Championships, she finished 2nd.
Jakara began to dream of Olympic gold. A silver medal at the 2019 World Championships and three World Cup golds followed before she came fourth at the 2021 World Championships to set up a run for gold in Beijing.
“It was my childhood dream come true and that is something so special,” she said. “I was so lucky to be able to share that with my team there and have everybody back home watching it and it was just an incredible experience.
“It has taken a lot of work and there have been a lot of really tough times, but the processes that we have put in place and have really committed to solidifying have really shown to come through with the goods.”
