Former athlete Linford Christie, is the only British male to have won gold in the four major athletics competitions; the World, Commonwealth and European Championships, and The Olympic Games.
During his career Christie has held the record for the men’s 100m and and 60m and was the first British male to break the 10 second barrier in the 100m sprint. Linford Christie is still the most decorated male athlete Britain has to offer, holding 23 major championship medals, with 10 of them being gold.
Since finishing his track career, Christie has focused on coaching athletes Katharine Merry and Darren Campbell to earn their own Olympic medals. He also runs his own sports management company.
We are proud of all our British athletes but Linford Christie truly is a national treasure.
