As a keen sportsman, Jamie tried a number of sports before settling on wheelchair rugby.
He holds three gold medals at national level in swimming, and was a talented wheelchair basketball player at U19 level. However, wheelchair rugby is his new home and as part of the new cohort of GB players, he has made a big impact.
He made his international debut at the Canada Cup in 2014 and has gone on to represent GB at European and World Championships, most recently returning from the European Championships in Finland with a gold medal.
Jamie made his Paralympic debut at Rio 2016, where Great Britain finished in fifth place after the toughest of competitions.
GB lost to eventual gold medallists Australia by just two points and were edged out in overtime by top seeds Canada, who lost to silver medallists the United States in their semi-final.
