My name is Mike Rowlands. I live in Kent, England but I've been skiing since I was two years old and took up freestyle skiing when I was nine.
I am a member of the Team GB Freestyle Squad and I compete in the Olympic freestyle discipline of slopestyle skiing which is essentially throwing myself down a mountain course consisting of a series of huge snow ramps and rails while performing intricate, complex, mid-air tricks and doing it with “style”.
I want to promote and develop my sport of Freeskiing by getting it more airtime in the mainstream media and into the eyes of the general population. It is a progressive sport that is exciting to watch.
My goal is to represent Great Britain in the next Winter Olympics alongside my younger sister, teammates and fellow competitors that I have grown up skiing with. The Games are to be held in Pyeongchang, South Korea in February 2018.
I enjoy skiing because of the places it takes me, the people I get to meet and the overall atmosphere and fun vibe of skiing.
These are my competition finishing positions so far this season
