Amelia joined the GB Skeleton Talent team in the summer of 2017 while a final year Sport and Exercise Science student at Sheffield Hallam University.

An all-round sportswoman, Amelia was a county high jump and long jump champion and a keen hockey player but her primary sporting focus prior to skeleton was racquet sports.

She won a national silver medal with her school badminton team and was a county doubles champion and national mixed doubles champion in tennis before successfully coming through the UK Sport talent identification campaign, Discover Your Gold, in 2016/17.

AMELIA IN HER OWN WORDS...

  • Nickname: Ginger Fox
  • Most likely to be spotted: in the gym or sleeping
  • Least likely to be found: swimming
  • Me in three: fun, determined, committed
  • Hero: Dame Kelly Holmes as her motto is 'always be the best you can be', which is what I strive to do
  • If I wasn’t a slider: I would use my Sport Science degree to become a physiologist for elite athletes. If I competed in a different sport, I'd do it in downhill skiing
