Hazel says she is a 'pretty average' skier
Born in St Andrew's, Hazel attended the Hermitage Academy in Helensburgh before studying for an MA in History of Art at Scotland's University of St Andrew's.

She was a talented sportswoman and gained representative honours in golf, netball and athletics for Scottish Universities.

Hazel's broadcasting career began in 1986 as a production assistant with Radio Clyde in Glasgow.

Her move into sport came a year later when she joined Scottish Television as a reporter.

She worked as a presenter on ITV's coverage of the 1988 Olympics and reported for the ITV Network on the 1990 World Cup Finals.

Hazel joined BBC Scotland in 1990 as presenter of its Friday night sports preview programme Sportscene.

She has gone on to report on major events such as the Winter Olympics, World Cup Finals, the Commonwealth Games and a range of women's golf events such as the Solheim Cup.

In 1997, she took over from David Vine as the regular presenter of BBC Two's Ski Sunday.

She has presented Sunday Grandstand and regularly reports for Football Focus.

At the 1999 RTS Awards, she was named Best Regional TV Presenter/Reporter.
