Torah Bright receives Medal of the Order of Australia

Roxy Team Rider, 25-year old Torah Bright received The Medal of the Order of Australia on Australia Day 26th January 2012 for service to sport as a Gold Medallist at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games.

The Medal of the Order of Australia is awarded to individuals nominated by the community whose achievements are deemed 'worthy of recognition' by the Order of Australia Council.

The Cooma local heard the news whilst in Salt Lake City, where she currently resides: "I am hugely honoured to be receiving this Medal of Honour! I know there are many people deserving and perhaps more deserving than I to receive this award. I am so thrilled and overwhelmed with joy for this, thank you!” says Torah. Also a former TTR Tour World Champion, Torah has been signed to Roxy since the aged of 13. A globally recognized athlete, she was the first Roxy rider to launch her own signature collection, the Roxy Bright Edition in 2009. She is also a two-time Winter X Games gold medallist in the snowboard half pipe.
