BIOGRAPHY

Callum Skinner returned from Rio 2016 a double Olympic medallist after playing a key role in the dominance of Team GB’s cyclists on the track in Brazil.

Skinner took gold in the team sprint alongside Jason Kenny and Philip Hindes before taking silver behind Kenny in the individual sprint.

That came in the same year he claimed the title for the men’s team sprint at the UCI Track Cycling World Cup in Hong Kong, though it was 2014 where he came to prominence with a British National Track Championships clean sweep.

Inspired by the exploits of Olympian Chris Hoy, Skinner first joined the British Cycling Senior Academy in 2010 and in 2018, the Glaswegian took bronze in the men’s 1km time trial at the Commonwealth Games on Australia’s Gold Coast.

Months later, Skinner was appointed to the UK Anti-Doping Athlete Commission.
