Jan Farrell was born in 1983, the son of a Czech mother and an English father. Jan first put on a pair of skis when he was 2 years old, and he has never missed a season since the age of five.

His first speed ski race was in 2011, and soon began to have success: he’s been the top British ski racer 3 years in a row; 9th in the world in 2012, and 5th in 2013, before winning the top spot in 2014, becoming Overall FIS Speed Ski World Cup SDH Champion. He reached a speed of 210.035 kph, thus becoming the third fastest skier in history on downhill skis.

Jan combines his career as a top sportsman with that of an entrepreneur. When he is not skiing, you will find him in his office at Liberalia, the company he founded at the age of 18. He is actively involved in over half a dozen firms, plays an active role in various federations, including FIS and the Madrid Ski Federation and acts as a Mentor for budding entrepreneurs who are studying their MBA at IE Business School.

His passion to create, develop, compete and his will to win is just as strong in his business environment. Jan is brand ambassador of Atomic & Leki, and is sponsored by Liberalia, Manifiesto, GlobalPhysio, SkiClinic and CoppelDental.

His goals for the upcoming seasons are to continue to bring World Cup and World Championship medals homes. He wants to win his first Cristal Globe in Speed Ski S1 class and continue beating Guinness World Records.
