Fanny Smith made a precocious debut at the Winter Olympics back in 2010 but is still waiting for that first medal.

  • Name - Fanny Smith
  • Date of Birth - 20/05/1992
  • Place of Birth - Aigle, Switzerland
  • Sport/Discipline - Freestyle skiing (ski cross)
  • Honours - World Championships: Gold x1, Silver x1, Bronze x1; X Games: Bronze x1

As a 17-year-old at Vancouver 2010, Smith troubled opponents much older than herself at the inaugural ski cross event at the Winter Olympics, finishing seventh.

However, she was unable to improve on that result four years later, coming a disappointing eight in Sochi.

Still, Smith has plenty of pedigree with 11 World Cup victories to her name and a gold in the World Championships of 2013. Securing bronze in 2015 and then silver in 2017 at the same event shows she knows how to turn it on for the big events.
