Men

     
Liam Killeen   Liam Killeen

Liam ‘Killah’ Killeen used to race motorcross as a Junior before taking up mountain bike racing aged 12. He finished a very respectable fifth in the Athens Olympic Games 2004, and this was followed up two years later in the 2006 Commonwealth Games with a gold medal in the same discipline.

In the Beijing Olympics Liam suffered an early drama when, just 150 metres in, he collided with a course marker, falling heavily and picking up a badly grazed knee. Liam put himself back on the bike and worked his way through the pack to finish seventh overall.
