Fennell competed well at the Sochi Olympics, but since he did not finish in the top 10, he is now only partially funded by the Canadian Luge Association. As a result, in order to fulfil his funding needs, Fennell launched a fundraising campaign on the sports crowdfunding platform MAKEACHAMP on December 12, 2014.
In 2018, Fennell, unable to qualify for the Canadian squad for the 2018 Winter Olympics, took advantage of his dual Canadian-U.S citizenship and competed for a spot on the U.S. squad; but crashed his sled during the trials and did not make the team.
