Braydon Luscombe entered four races at the 2018 Paralympic Winter Games.  His best result in Para alpine skiing was an eighth place in the Super G.

A former prospect athlete who moved up to the national team in 2011 after forerunning at the Vancouver 2010 Paralympic Winter Games, Luscombe has recorded 23 top-10 finishes at IPC World Cup races since his first World Cup season (2012).

At the 2017 World Championships, Luscombe had a top-ten finish in downhill. In the 2016-17 season, he had two sixth-place finishes.

Luscombe, who says the athletes he admires most in sport are his fellow competitors and teammates, likes to road cycle in his spare time, and is known on the team for his sense of humour and flowing mullet. He is a talented artist who designs tattoos in sketchbooks that often accompany him on the road.
