Jamie has established himself as one of the world’s leading modern pentathletes. Based in Bath, he has a degree in Business Administration and Geography from Bath Spa University.
In 2013, Jamie won the first Modern Pentathlon World Cup medal of his career in Budapest to continue his emergence onto the senior stage.
Victory in the opening World Cup of the Rio Olympics qualification period came in February 2015, when Jamie took gold in Sarasota, USA.
An extraordinary 2016 followed, in which he claimed his third career World Cup in Hungary in April before an historic gold medal in May saw him become the first British man to win gold at a World Cup Final event.
Jamie’s stunning qualification period ahead of the Rio Olympics didn’t lend itself to the beginning of his Olympic performance, and Jamie found himself in a tie for 28th place after the fencing round.
However, he rallied brilliantly and set an Olympic record for modern pentathlon 200m swimming, finishing comfortably ahead of the rest of the field.
A solid ride kept Jamie in contention for the run/shoot event but he eventually finished in 14th place.
