Skiing career

Segal initially began competitive skiing as a mogul skier, and subsequently moved into freeskiing events. She was a member of the NSWIS/SSA National Development mogul team 2003–05 and competed in several Europa Cup Mogul events during that time. She suffered a serious knee injury in 2006.

Her first major win in slopestyle was the Women's US Freeskiing Open at Copper Mountain, USA, in 2007.

She won the gold medal for the inaugural Women's Ski Slopestyle at Winter X Games 13 at Buttermilk Mountain on 24 January 2009 in Aspen, Colorado.

In early 2013, Segal damaged her left knee at a World Cup event in Switzerland. She took 3rd in Slopestyle at the FIS USA World Cup in 2013.

Segal competed for Australia at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, four weeks after learning she had torn the ACL in her knee. She came in fourth place, eight points behind bronze medalist Canadian Kim Lamarre in the women's ski slopestyle. It was Australia's first fourth-place finish ever in Winter Olympics history.

Segal retired from competitive skiing after the Olympics. During her career she sustained three ACL reconstructions, two meniscal tears, cartilage damage in her knee, a broken ankle, a broken thumb, and a few concussions.
