World champion, record-breaking, Olympic medal winning British archer Alison Williamson has become a highly popular Olympic speaker since retiring from the sport in 2014.
Alison – only the fourth Briton to appear at six consecutive Games (she has taken part in four Olympic Games) – achieved her career highlight in 2004 when she won a bronze medal, the first time in nearly 100 years that a British female athlete had won an individual archery medal at the Olympics. As part of a team at the Commonwealth Games in 2010, Alison achieved a silver medal. Two years later, she got an MBE.
A former Olympic and European record holder – at one stage managing to score 651 from 72 arrows and, in Europe, 165 from 18 arrows – Williamson made her Olympics debut in 1992 at just 20 years old. She has gone on to become ranked second in the European Championships, ranked second in the world, and to forge a whole new career as a fascinating Olympic speaker.
Other major achievements in the life of Alison Williamson include – in a single year – getting a World Championship silver medal and a European Grand Prix gold medal.
This Olympic speaker knows what it’s like to compete at the very highest level and to stand alone under pressure as well as working as part of a winning team.
