He was born with an impairment to both hands and competes in two standing events, the slalom and giant slalom - but without ski poles

James is ranked second in the world in slalom at under-18 level. Sochi should stand him in good stead as he pushes to become a medal prospect at the 2018 Paralympics in South Korea. Since being recruited to BDST, James has made great progress and is World Cup qualified in Slalom and Giant Slalom. In 2013, he competed in his first major international, the IPC Alpine Skiing World Championships in La Molina, Spain, where he ranked 16th in the Giant Slalom. He finished the 2012/13 season by winning his first senior medal, a bronze in Giant Slalom at Chamrousse, France.
