Milly Kellyman officially joined the British Skeleton programme in the summer of 2019, although she had trained with the squad on a regular basis the previous year.

Milly initially trialled for the programme back in 2016 through the Discover Your Gold process but missed out on selection just prior to the on-ice confirmation camp. Staff were keen to keep an eye on her progress, however, and she was invited back to Bath and then out on ice at the end of 2017 before beginning training with the team regularly in the summer of 2018.

She finished ninth on her international debut in Europa Cup competition in Igls in February 2021 and won her maiden medal on just her sixth start for her country when claiming EC bronze at the same track 10 months later. 

Milly previously competed in athletics, running the 60m and 100m sprints and representing her county, Staffordshire, at the latter. 

Prior to joining the British Skeleton set up, Milly studied Child and Youth Studies at Derby University, graduating in 2015. She combined her early skeleton involvement with a career  as a primary school teacher, completing her training at Thomas Barnes in Tamworth before teaching Year 4 and then Year 2 at Wilnecote Junior for two years.
