Medibank is one of the leading suppliers of health insurance, life, travel and pet insurance in Australia.
The 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics were a fantastic success for three young skaters who call the Medibank Icehouse home.
Speed skaters Deanna Lockett and Pierre Boda, as well as figure skater Brooklee Han were members of the largest Australian Winter Olympic team in history, joining the 60 athletes donning the green and gold in Russia earlier this year.
Since the close of the Olympics on February 23, they have continued their pursuit of ice skating excellence, participating in further international competitions. They’ve each taken a break from their busy schedules to give us a run down on their Olympic experience and thoughts on the Medibank Icehouse.
Deanna Lockett | Short Track Speed Skating
Deanna hails from Brisbane, Queensland where she first strapped on the skates at the age of 9. Eager to cut laps around the others at public skating sessions, she soon decided to try her hand at speed skating. This soon grew into a passion, and Deanna’s family relocated to Melbourne so she could train at the Medibank Icehouse.
turned out to be an excellent decision, with Sochi marking 18 year old
Deanna’s Winter Olympic debut. It was a successful Olympics finishing
with an overall position of 9th in the female Short Track, 26th in 1500m
and a chance to represent her country on the world’s biggest sporting
We look forward to welcoming Deanna back to the Medibank Icehouse, as she sets her sights on South Korea in 2018.
Pierre Boda | Short Track Speed Skating
Pierre started skating not long after he learnt to walk, at the tender age of 6. Inspired by a speed skater at his sister’s birthday party, he soon signed up with his local club.
Brooklee Han | Figure Skating
Brooklee grew up in Connecticut, USA but has green and gold running through her veins with her father being Australian. While she lives and trains in the US, Medibank Icehouse is her Australian home.
