One of the ‘Huntly XC Mafia’ Andrew has was raised with Nordic skiing in the family, and is looking for a good result in his second Olympics after withdrawing in 2014.

  • Discipline: Cross Country
  • D.O.B: 12 February 1992
  • Hometown: Huntly

With most of his family involved in training Cross Country skiers or racing themselves, the path to being an elite Nordic athlete was set out from a young age for Andrew. In 2008 he became the youngest skier to compete at World Cup level, a year later finishing 14th in the 4x10km Relay. His best achievement to date is a World Cup podium in the sprint at Toblach 2015. His progress has not been without setbacks though - a heart condition called Tachycardia occasionally flares up, most dramatically during the team sprint at Sochi 2014, causing Young and his partner Musgrave to withdraw in the middle of the semi-finals. Young will be hoping for a second chance at Sprint glory in 2018.
