From an early age, Ollie was into extreme sports, having started skiing before he was 4, albeit only ever for holidays, snowboarding became a hobby from age 8, once he had started skateboarding a couple of years before.
From then on skateboarding became his life for a long time, with snowboarding on family holidays always being something he looked forward too and wished he could do more of.
Fast forward 20 something years and this has become a reality, even though not in intended circumstances.
After racing Motocross through his teenage years, he moved onto superbike racing competing in the Triumph Triple Challenge for 2 years in the British Superbike paddock, tasting some success along the way.
Unfortunately, in December 2018, Ollie was involved in a car accident which resulted his leg being amputated on impact, when in hospital he came across Para Snowboarding (Boardercross Specifically) whilst looking at the life after life changing injuries, realising this could be something he could be good at, he set a goal to join the GB Paralympic team and become a world champion, whilst also competing at the Paralympics.
He joined the team in Summer 2020, and by his 3rd Boardercross Race ever, achieved a 2nd Place Podium finish at World cup Level, which helped him to end up Runner up (2nd overall) in the 2020 / 2021 world Cup Season, which also was his rookie season.
