Athlete main content


Gary Smith first tried skiing as part of an RAF skiing expedition in 2002 in Les Arcs, France. He quickly became hooked and, within four years, he was racing for the RAF squad.

Following Charlotte Evans’ retirement, Gary began guiding for Paralympic champion Kelly Gallagher, working as a full-time athlete with support from the Royal Air Force.

Soon after pairing up, the duo claimed a gold, silver and two bronze medals at the IPC World Cup Finals in Aspen, Colorado in March 2016, though they missed the 2017 World Championships after Kelly sustained a significant injury in training.
