Scott Meenagh was inspired to try Para Nordic skiing after getting a taste of winter sport during Sochi 2014, which he experienced as part of the Paralympic Inspiration Programme.
Prior to that Scott competed in para rowing at an international level. He started Nordic Skiing in December 2014 and made the switch from rowing full time in March 2016.
Scott made his competitive debut for Great Britain at the World Cup in Vuokatti, Finland in December 2016.
At the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games Scott became the first British Para Nordic skier to represent his country at that level. He raced six times at PyeongChang, covering 60km, with his best result coming in the men’s 12.5km sitting biathlon where he finished 13th.
As a youngster Scott played rugby competitively and represented West of Scotland and Scotland under 18s.
He was injured when he stepped on an improvised explosive device (IED) while serving in Afghanistan at the age of 21.
Since making his Paralympic debut in Pyeongchang Scott has continued to impress on the international circuit, claiming a host of top-10 results at the 2019 World Championships in Prince George, Canada.
Despite an interrupted 2021 season, Scott finished 8th in the long distance cross country event at the delayed 2021 World Championships, taking place in Lillehammer, Norway in January 2022.
