A little background info

I’m a British cross country skier from Inverurie, Aberdeenshire. Having started skiing at the age of 8 at an open day at the Huntly Nordic ski centre I progressed through to the British Nordic development squad and onto the national team, competing at my first Olympic games in Sochi.

I have just completed a degree in chemical engineering at the University of Edinburgh, where I combined four years of full time study with training. With two years to go until the next Olympics, I’m now a full time athlete, focussing 100% on getting as fast as I can at running round snowy forests on two bits of wood.

With this blog I hope to share some stories from my adventures in chasing my long term goal of a top 30 placing at the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang.

Outside of skiing I’m a keen cyclist, riding with the Granite City RT. Other hobbies include cooking, reading, music, climbing and recently orienteering (badly)
