Amanda Lightfoot became only the second ever British biathlon female athlete to compete at an Olympic Winter Games at Sochi 2014, and first started the sport through the military in 2006.

Still serving in the Adjutant General’s Corps of the Army, she was awarded British Biathlete of the Year in 2011. Lightfoot has been a member of the British Biathlon team for five years, and has competed at both European and World Cup levels.

Lightfoot trains predominantly in Norway due to the lack of snow in the UK. However when she is at home, she uses a variety of different training methods in order to maintain and improve her performance, including dry land roller-skating.
