Olympic gold and silver medallist at Rio 2016, Callum competed at his third Commonwealth Games for Team Scotland in Gold Coast, taking bronze in the Kilo.

At the Rio 2016 Olympics his winning time, alongside Jason Kenny and Philip Hindes, in the Team Sprint was a new Olympic Record as they defeated New Zealand to take the Olympic title. His silver came in the Individual Sprint where he was defeated in an all-British final by Kenny.

He took four gold medals at the British Championships as well as European Championship gold in the Kilo in 2014 and has regularly graced the World Cup podium, both individually and in the Team Sprint.
