BIOGRAPHY

Amanda Lightfoot started skiing whilst serving the military in 2006 and began competing internationally two years later.

She underwent a knee operation in April 2013 before making her Olympic Winter Games debut at Sochi 2014.

Finishing 75th and 71st in the 7.5km sprint and 15km individual, Lightfoot has seen improvements since that display, with her personal best coming at the 2017 World Championships in Hochfilzen, finishing 32nd in the 15km individual.

Lightfoot, who was the only Team GB biathlon representative selected for PyeongChang 2018 – where she finished 67th in the sprint and 73rd in the individual - is the second British female biathlete to compete at Olympic level following Emma Fowler at Turin 2006.
