Andy lost his right leg after a cycling accident in 2011 when he was hit by a car.

Already interested in snowboarding prior to the accident while at university, he soon began competing and was selected to be a torch bearer for both the London 2012 and the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Joining the Para Snowboard team in 2018 Andy made an immediate impression with top 10 finish in his maiden World Cup race in Landgraaf, Netherlands.

He has continued to post some great results and most recently finished in the top 16 in both Snowboard Cross and Banked Slalom at the 2021 World Championships.

Andy made his Paralympic debut at Beijing 2022 where he placed in the top-20 for the snowboard cross (17th) and banked slalom (20th) events.
