Winning the points and individual pursuit at the 2012 British Track Cycling Championships as a junior, Chris Latham joined the Olympic Academy Programme in November 2012.
At the final round of the 2014/15 UCI World Cup series, Chris formed part of the team pursuit squad which won the bronze medal - a promising result from a team made up of Academy riders.
Chris went on to become the Under-23 European team pursuit champion in July 2015, before adding senior European bronze in the elimination race at the UEC European Track Championships in Grenchen, Switzerland.
He finished 2015 on the podium once more with an impressive silver medal in the omnium in the second round of the 2015/16 UCI Track Cycling World Cup in Cambridge, New Zealand. In the final round of the series, Chris was back on the podium, this time claiming bronze in the team pursuit along with Germain Burton, Ollie Wood and Kian Emadi.
