The 2012/13 season was an oustanding one for Alex 'Chumpy' Pullin, winning his second consecutive World Championship title as well as taking the overall World Cup title. With seven finals appearances and four podiums from seven races, including an exciting dead heat finish, it was a thrilling season.
Winning the World Championship and World Cup title in the same year in 2013, as he did in 2011 is a feat unmatched by any other Australian in any winter sport.
Pullin competed at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics . He was fastest in both qualifying runs but was then eliminated in the 1/8 finals. Just after the Games, Pullin went on to win his first World Cup in Valmalenco, Italy. He followed this with silver in La Molina, the final World Cup of the season, to finish second on the overall World Cup standings.
Pullin grew up in Mansfield and started skiing at the age of three, snowboarding for the first time at the age of eight. He competed at his first National Championships when he was 15 and has been on the international circuit ever since.
Back in Australia, Pullin is a keen surfer and plays in a band called Love Charli.
