Graham Bell

Graham is one of Great Britain's most successful ever skiers.

Since winning silver as a youngster at the World Junior Championships, Graham went from strength to strength.

He won eight British titles, one overall championship, and came 12th in the World Cup downhill competition in Kitzbuhel.

Graham has represented Great Britain five times in the Winter Olympics.

However, Graham will be spending this Winter Olympics behind the microphone as he retakes his place on the BBC's skiing commentary team.

Olympic Dreams

He joined the BBC in 1998 as a regular commentator and presenter for Ski Sunday.

He has also presented several editions of the joint British Olympic Association/ BBC initiative Olympics Dreams, a programme within Grandstand looking at the hopes and dreams of the UK's Olympians, and reported for BBC Radio Five Live.

Graham has also worked for other channels on programmes such as GMTV and Wish You Were Here.

Graham is the Performance Director for the British Ski and Snowboard Federation, including such responsibilities as team selection and managing athletic programmes.
