Meet the British Paralympic Snowboarding Team

Ben Moore, Cassie Cava, James Barnes-Miller, Darren Swift and Owen Pick make up the British Paralympic Snowboarding Team hopefuls. 

 

Ben Moore

Ben entered into extreme sports at a young age on his BMX bike. He discovered snowboarding in 2007 and found his own impressive style on the board. 

 

 

 

 

 

James Barnes-Miller

James started skateboarding as a schoolboy, before taking up snowboarding five years ago. It's truly impressive how quickly his talent has developed!

 

 

 

 

 

Owen Pick

Owen was 18 when his leg was blown off by an IED in Afghanistan. For 18 months he battled to save it but, in 2011, Owen made the tough choice to amputate his leg below the knee. Now 24, what Pick did next is inspirational. From never having tried board sports, he is now a kick-ass wakeboarder and world class snowboarder. 

 

 

 

 

Darren Swift

Darren Swift was injured by an IRA bomb in May 1991 while serving with the Army’s Dog Unit in Belfast. Darren has been very active in encouraging other amputees to try snowboarding. 'Swifty' says he's happiest screaming down a mountain.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cassie Cava

It's been less than two years since Cassie had her foot amputated but nothing is holding her back! She's taken up snowboarding and her skill and determination keeps her excelling on the slopes.
