Stefan officially joined the GB Skeleton Talent Squad alongside Philippa Brett and Hannah Stevenson in the spring of 2016.

His pathway into the sport came through the UK Sport Power2Podium programme in 2014 and he gained his first sliding experience the following year.

A season as part of the Future Talent group followed in 2015/16, before he linked up with the squad as a whole prior to the start of the 2016/17 campaign.

His sporting background features county level swimming in Staffordshire and athletics at Bromsgrove School Sixth Form but his main love prior to skeleton was rugby union. Stefan played for Newbridge RFC in the Welsh Championship whilst studying in Cardiff, as well as Whakarewarewa RFC in New Zealand.

STEFAN IN HIS OWN WORDS...

  • Nickname: Stef
  • Most likely to be spotted: watching rugby and catching up with friends
  • Least likely to be found: with a tan
  • Me in three: competitive, passionate, modest
  • Hero: Jonny Wilkinson: he was completely fearless on the pitch and never hesitated to put his body on the line. His professionalism was something to aspire to and he worked hard on every aspect of his game, making the most of his potential
  • Random fact: I'm scared of cows. They really freak me out
  • If I wasn’t a slider: I would have gone travelling again and eventually tried to pursue a career in the RAF
