Adam McLeish was selected to represent Team GB in snowboard parallel giant slalom (PGS) at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games. These were his first Olympic Winter Games, where he finished 24th in the PGS competition.
McLeish comes from British roots, but grew up in Canada. He has been skiing since he was three years old, competing to a high level, but only took to snowboarding when he was 20.
When he’s not on his snowboard, McLeish likes to make furniture out of reclaimed wood, or to simply sit down and read a good book.
