Tabby Stoecker became part of the British Skeleton Talent Team in 2019 after successfully navigating her way through an extensive nationwide recruitment campaign.

Tabby saw off thousands of other applicants during the UK Sport and English Institute of Sport led Discover Your Gold selection process and is now hoping to match the achievements of some of the big names who have come through the same process since the campaign’s inception in 2009.

She made her international debut with a fine seventh place finish in Europa Cup competition in Igls in December 2021 and was eighth and then ninth in her two other EC races in Sigulda last season.

Tabby ended her debut racing campaign in outstanding style as she won Junior World Championship silver in Igls in January 2022. That result was British Skeleton's best Junior World Championship performance since double Olympic Champion Lizzy Yarnold triumphed at the same venue in 2012 and it came only a month after her first-ever competition.

A former student at City of London School for Girls, Tabby was a British Schools Gymnastics Association national trio champion and also excelled at acrobatics and netball.
