Callum won Gold in the Men’s Team Sprint in his first Olympic appearance in Rio.
Callum narrowly missed out on the Gold in the Individual Sprint to Jason Kenny, his team and roommate in Rio.
He was inspired to take up track cycling in 2004, when fellow Scotsman Sir Chris Hoy won Gold in the Kilo at the Olympic Games in Athens. Four years after taking up track cycling, Callum broke the National 200m record for his age category and was presented with the Chris Hoy Trophy by Sir Chris himself in recognition for this achievement.
Callum had a promising and impressive performance at the Commonwealth Games in 2014, where he made the final in the Team Sprint.
In his spare time Callum enjoys all outdoor sports, loves anything to do with speed and can often be found in quality coffee shops or obsessively trying to brew a better cup himself.
