The stateside skier with British blood, Annika has had great results in the US & Swiss national championships but wants to get higher with GB.

  • Discipline: Cross Country
  • D.O.B: 4th June 1993
  • Hometown: Truckee, CA

A cross country skier since the age of 2 and racing since the age of 5, Annika won almost everything there is at state level in her home state of California before several junior podiums nationally. As an adult she chose to study at the University of New Hampshire, in part based on its proximity to great ski trails, juggling study and racing - with a career highlight of being named ‘All American’ after a 7th place at the National Championships in 2015, the same year she graduated. Having dual nationality thanks to her father Peter being British, she has chosen to become a professional athlete for Team GB. Like many of the British athletes she has spent the last two winters training in Norway.
