Owen Pick took up snowboarding on a trip to Colorado and soon after followed up with a snowboard instructor’s course.
His first adaptive race came in 2014 and he quickly impressed, becoming part of the British team and picking up an eighth-place finish at the 2015 X Games.
In 2017 Owen claimed his first World Championship medal when he finished second in the banked slalom in Big White, Canada.
Owen competed for ParalympicsGB at the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games – the first time the country has had snowboard representation at that level – and carried the British flag in the opening ceremony. He finished ninth in the snowboard cross SB-LL2 and ninth in the banked slalom.
Having never before stood on top of any podium, in March 2020 Owen won the Crystal Globe – the World Cup title – in the banked slalom.
