Ben started Bobsleigh in 2012 after he saw an advert on a university noticeboard. British Bobsleigh were searching for ‘future Olympians’ who could transfer their talent to the ice with the aim of reaching the Sochi 2014 Games in Russia, which Ben successfully applied for.

Since then he has competed at three world championships and at the Sochi 2014 winter Olympics. His highest career finish was 5th at the 2015 world championships.
