BIOGRAPHY

Andrew Musgrave represented Team GB in cross-country skiing at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games. The Vancouver Games were Musgrave's first Olympic Winter Games, where his best placing was 51st in the 30km pursuit. He also placed 55th in the 15km individual freestylye race and 58th in the individual sprint.

Musgrave turned 20 just after the Olympic Winter Games, but already has established himself as an outstanding talent in a gruelling sport. He is the first British skier who has ever earned a top-ten place in a world-class cross-country event, coming ninth in the World Junior Championships in France in 2008.

Ahead of Sochi 2014, Musgrave has already triumphed in the sprint event at the Norweigian National Championships 2014, where he managed to out-sprint previous World Cup winners.

As a youngster whose father worked in the oil business, his family moved regularly, meaning that Andrew has already lived in Dorset, Aberdeenshire, Shetland, Alaska and Norway, where he has spent much time training.
