The Olympic Winter Institute of Ausralia’s (OWIA) primary purpose is elite high performance for nine disciplines of winter sports. Strong Australian performances were recorded in the 2013 benchmark events. Results from Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games were within range, however leaving Sochi without a gold medal was below expectation. OWIA continues to build depth and produce a greater number of world cup medal-winning performances across a wider range of disciplines. There has been progress with the freestyle water jump and Perisher half-pipe facilities projects in the past year. These facilities will provide quality domestic training venues for elite winter athletes.

Established by the Australian Olympic Committee, OWIA has a unique structure given its purpose is specific only to high performance. OWIA is a company limited by guarantee. It operates under a corporate governance framework consistent with that of AOC. To the extent to which this framework does not align with the ASC’s mandatory governance principles, discussions will be undertaken with the AOC to improve alignment. The Winning Edge investment approach will be applied to the OWIA for the first time in 2014

The OWI does not administer participation programs.
