Chris Lloyd started skiing at the age of 14 but was injured in a rally car accident in 2011 and his consultant told him he would never ski again.. Four months later he regained some movement and was able to walk a short distance.

He was encouraged to begin skiing as part of his rehabilitation and was back on the snow 12 months after his accident at Tamworth Ski Dome, while in August 2013 he was invited to become a member of the development squad with the British Disabled Ski Team.

Chris was part of the Paralympic Inspiration Programme for Sochi 2014 which further motivated him to secure a spot for ParalympicsGB at PyeongChang 2018.
