Amelia Coltman is the current European Championship bronze medalist, a World Cup regular and a top six finisher at the World Championships.

Amelia made her maiden top-flight podium with a superb showing in the European Championships in Sigulda in February 2024 as she claimed Great Britain's first women's European Championship medal since 2015. That race also marked Amelia's best World Cup result to date as she placed fourth in what was the ninth World Cup race of he career.

She finished sixth in the individual competition at her debut World Championships in Winterberg in February 2024 and was fourth in the team event with Marcus Wyatt before ending the season 16th in the World Cup rankings.

Amelia enjoyed a brilliant beginning to her racing career as she was crowned the overall Europa Cup (EC) winner in her debut season. Having finished second in her first ever international race in December 2019, Amelia became the first Brit to take the EC title in their maiden season of competitive sliding after she collected five medals across seven races. She won two gold, two bronze and a silver to finish well clear at the top of the rankings despite the fact that the British team sat out the sixth race of the season in Sigulda. Britain’s most successful Winter Olympian, Lizzy Yarnold, won overall EC silver in her debut season in 2010/11 and Brogan Crowley won gold in 2017/18 two years into her international career but Amelia was the first to finish top of the standings in her very first season of competition.

She now has a total of 15 medals for her country - including four gold - and is closing in on a half century of international appearances prior to the start of the 2024/25 sliding season.

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.
