Meet the Squad

During the four competitive seasons that culminated in the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, GB Short Track skaters achieved 19 ISU World Cup medals, 3 World Championship medals, which included Britain’s first ever individual female world medallist in Elise Christie, and a world record in the sports’ blue ribbon event, the men’s 5000m relay.

History was made at Sochi 2014 as Jack Whelbourne became the first British male
to reach an Olympic final in the 1500m, while Elise Christie again became the first British female to reach an Olympic final.

Since Sochi 2014 the team has gone from strength to strength and is now back competing on the World stage getting them ready for the next Winter Olympic Games 2018.
