BIOGRAPHY

Izzy Atkin became the first Briton to win an Olympic skiing medal when she claimed slopestyle bronze at PyeongChang 2018.

Atkin, who was making her Games debut, sat fourth after two runs in the final before a nerveless 84.60 put her into third before she watched the three final athletes try and fail to knock her off the podium. 

Born in the USA, Izzy Atkin qualifies to represent Britain through her father and has been with the GB Park and Pipe team since 2014.

She created history in March 2017 when she became the first British female skier to win a World Cup slopestyle event in Silvaplana, Switzerland.

She followed that up with a bronze medal at the 2017 World Championships in Sierra Nevada, Spain, and World Cup silver in Aspen.
