Brittany George, a 24-year-old Australian skier who had been missing for less than a week, was recently discovered dead in a Brisbane suburb in the Australian state of Queensland.
Brittany George, an Australian skier who died in a skiing accident, is mourned by her family and friends.
According to the Courier Mail, the aspiring Olympian and Australian aerial skier, who was 24 years old at the time of her death, was discovered dead in a Brisbane suburb on Jan. 27. A sighting of George was recorded in the same region on January 21st, and he has not been seen since. The exact reason for her death has not yet been determined.
George, who was a member of the Australian Olympic Winter Institute from 2017 to 2020, competed in a number of important international competitions in the hopes of securing a spot at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. She was forced to retire early after suffering a career-ending back injury that ended her athletic career prematurely. In October, she shared her feelings about the injuries and how they had affected her life.
In an episode of the Couching the Mind podcast, she explained that she had been an “athlete” since she was two years old. “I’ve been ‘the athlete’ since I was two till I was 20 or 21,” she stated. I was completely without a sense of self. From a very young age, I was referred to as “the athlete,” and I just went along with it. “
She went on to say, “I stuffed everything in there. Everything, including my injuries [and] academics, became second-class due to my participation in sports… It was a case of either all or nothing.”
George also talked about how difficult it was to leave the world of sports. “You’re a sportsperson, but who am I? What kind of person am I? Who exactly is Brittany? “” she explained. “That’s something I’m not familiar with… Every day, I battle to figure out who he or she is.”
Following the announcement of her death, George’s family established a GoFundMe campaign, the proceeds of which “will go straight towards funeral costs and arrangements to commemorate Brittany’s life.” Moreover, as stated in the description, the leftover cash will be donated to Lifeline, a non-profit organization that provides crisis assistance around the clock.
According to a statement on the GoFundMe page, “On Thursday, January 27th, 2022, our world came to a grinding halt when we received the tragic news that our beautiful Brittany had passed away suddenly,” per the GoFundMe page. Anyone who knew Brittany knew that she was tenacious and courageous, but she was also kind and kind as well. This was highlighted by her illustrious credentials as a former professional elite gymnast and a former Olympic Freestyle Aerial Skier with the Olympic Winter Institute of Australia, among other accomplishments.
While travelling the world to achieve this, she met and influenced the lives of so many people in such a wonderful way that I am confident her impact will endure a lifetime, “the statement added. Because she was always willing to lend a helping hand to everyone who needed it, with such unselfish dedication, it was an honour to be considered her family or friend.
In an interview with the Courier Mail, George’s father, Constantine Gus, described his daughter as “the most fantastic, gorgeous child from the very day she was born.”
According to the professor, “she had the athletic prowess to adopt anything she tried and flourish with it.” However, she possessed an extra-determined mentality to improve her trade, which is something that not many people will ever possess.
As Gus stated, “Her eyes were full of wonder, intelligence, and understanding beyond her years, and her pure soul was just gushing with love and compassion for everyone.” Gus’s daughter was killed in a car accident in 2009.
