Graham Bell is a British Olympic skier, TV presenter, adventurer and journalist who continues to be regarded as one of the finest downhill skiers the UK has ever produced. He was named Ski Champion of Britain eight times during his illustrious career, a testament to Graham’s dedication, skill and passion for this sport.
The five-time Olympian has remained at the forefront of British sport since his retirement in the late 90s, commentating on the Winter Olympics and fronting the popular BBC primetime series ‘Ski Sunday’. Graham and the ‘Ski Sunday’ team were even awarded the 2002 Royal Television Society award for their slope-side reporting, reflecting his talent onscreen.
Most recently, Graham competed in the Dancing on Ice 2021 line-up. Swapping his skis for skates, he was paired with Yebin Mok before joining forces with Karina Manta due to injury. Not one to be deterred by adversity, Graham skated solo in the season’s debut show, a testament to his determination and bravery.
Graham also works with a range of organisations and events to support the development of both winter and summer sports, including sailing, triathlon events and cycling. He regularly commentates on pinnacle sporting events, interviewing athletes and supplying expert analysis.
