Athlete Biography

Bodi Turner will get his chance on sport’s greatest stage in Rio after rising through the ranks in the past couple of years to be among the world’s elite.

Turner broke onto the scene in 2011 when he finished on the podium at a number of under 19 events before claiming 5th in the age group at the World Championships. He stepped up to the senior competition in 2013 and the following year he claimed bronze at the Australian Championships and fifth at the Oceania Championships.

He made his senior World Championships debut in 2015 where he finished 14th before going to secure his first World Cup podium in Sweden. Lining up against many of the athletes he will compete against in Rio, the Queenslander showed his progression in the sport by beating all but one of his more fancied rivals a year out from the 2016 Games. He finished the year as the 11th highest ranked rider in the world.

Turner began the Olympic year on home soil competing in the National Series. Having crashed out to finish seventh in the opening round he bounced back to claim two wins and a second as he again highlighted his credentials as one of Australia’s best.

After missing the semi-finals at the opening three World Cup events of the 2016 season, Turner progressed through to the penultimate race at the 2016 World Championships. In what was a stacked semi that also featured Rio 2016 teammate Sam Willoughby, Turner finished seventh to miss out on making his first senior World Championships final.
