BIOGRAPHY

James Woods won five consecutive British National Championships in slopestyle between 2007 and 2011.

The Sheffield skier won the FIS Freestyle Skiing World Cup for the same event in the 2012-13 season, winning two rounds along the way, and claimed silver that year at the Freestyle World Championships – becoming only the second ever British medallist at World Championship level.

Woods suffered a hip injury in training for the 2014 Sochi Olympic Winter Games, but finished a remarkable fifth in the slopestyle.

After winning the Big Air competition to take a first ever Winter X Games gold medal in 2017, the Brit went on to take Winter X Games Europe bronze in slopestyle before repeating the feat at the World Championships a week later.
