Murray Buchan started skiing at the age of eight at his local dryslope in Edinburgh and competed at his first British Championships at 14 - winning the slopestyle, ski cross, big air and halfpipe competitions at under-16 level.

He repeated that feat over the next two years and, in his first competition as a senior, finished third in the big air and slopestyle before being crowned British halfpipe champion in 2008 – a feat he repeated in 2013 and 2015.

Buchan made his Winter Olympic debut at Sochi 2014 where he finished 17th, and in 2016, placed 13th at the World Cup finals in Tignes.

In 2018, he bettered his previous Olympic result with a 14th-placed finish at the PyeongChang Olympic Winter games.
