BIOGRAPHY

Amanda Lightfoot became only the second ever female British biathlete to compete at an Olympic Winter Games at Sochi 2014, having started the sport through the military aged 19.

Serving in the Adjutant General’s Corps of the Army, she was awarded British Biathlete of the Year in 2011.

Splitting her time between South Shields and Lillehammer, Norway, Lightfoot’s work with coach Wolfgang Pichler bore fruit when she achieved a new personal best at the 2017 Biathlon World Championships, finishing 32nd in the individual race.
