With stories aplenty, we present megastar Olympians who have brought joy to a country, a generation and the world with their remarkable feats. Success is down to the man or woman behind it, their desire, drive and ambition to reach the top of the game they love. Those big names have inspired millions with their talent at Olympic Games, making them the best motivational speakers around.
Speaking on themes of leadership, motivation and overcoming adversity, the leading Olympic and Paralympic speakers have amazing tales to tell. From their first running shoes, bicycle, boxing gloves, oar or goggles to the biggest stage of all – find out how they got there, on a podium with their nation’s anthem playing out as they accept their medal and with it, a place in history.
There are few journeys as emotive and as exhilarating as that of an Olympian, and few as powerful and inspiring. Why not captivate your audience today by booking Olympic heroes and sports speakers to speak at your event?
London 2012 was an unprecedented success for the country, and our Olympians. Jeremy Hunt, Secretary of State at the time of the London games, said: ‘This is our greatest performance of our greatest team at the greatest Olympics ever’, and who could argue with that?
The tournament saw Great Britain take 65 medals, 18 more than the 47 brought home from Beijing four years before. That included 29 Gold medals, 17 silver and 19 bronze medals. Across every category, from swimming to athletics; cycling to shooting, new records were set. World records, personal bests and national records were all shattered during the most important games for the United Kingdom in generations.
Heroes were made at the 2012 Olympics, many of whom are fascinating motivational speakers today. Our range of personalities features many of the big-wigs from the world-famous British cycling team.
