BIO


Bright began skiing with her family at age two in Australia's Snowy Mountains and was an alpine racer. She switched to snowboarding at 11, following her older brother, Ben, a professional snowboarder who is now her coach. Torah's older sister Rowena competed in alpine skiing for Australia at the 2002 Salt Lake Games, placing 24th in the combined, 21st in the downhill, and did not finish the slalom. And her younger sister Abi is an up-and-coming snowboarder.One to always have a smile on her face, Bright says that when she's at snowboarding events, "I'm just like a little girl in a candy shop, I'm just so excited to be there." She lives with family members in Salt Lake City during the winters to train, as does Abi. Torah had surgery on her appendix in late 2005, which delayed her start this season. Bright, who enjoys dancing, says that if she wasn't a snowboarder, she'd like to be a rally car driver.Though she has only competed in seven World Cup events, she reached the podium in all but one of them, where she was fourth. Her one World Cup victory came at the Olympic venue in Bardonecchia, Italy in March 2004. She has also won two bronze medals there. Bright ranked second in the World Cup halfpipe standings in 2004, and at the 2005 U.S. Open, one of the toughest snowboarding competitions in the world, Bright placed second behind Gretchen Bleiler and ahead of Hannah Teter.
