Linford Christie

Linford Christie is one of the UK's most famous athletes. He is the only British man to have won gold medals in the 100 metres at all four major competitions open to British athletes: the Olympic Games, the World Championships, the European Championships and the Commonwealth Games. 

Linford Christie retired in 1997 as Britain's greatest ever athlete to concentrate his time and energy into his sports personality consultancy 'Nuff Respect'. He is currently available for personal appearances and Q & A's.

Linford Christie was the first of a new breed of athlete that defied age as a barrier to perform, winning his first major title at the age of 26. He went on to become the World's No 1 in the most fiercely competitive and prestigious event in athletics, the men's 100m.

Linford's impressive title collection includes an Olympic, a World Championship, three European, three Commonwealth, ten European Cup and four World Cup medals. Linford was the first man to retain the World Cup 100m title and in 1997 won a record 7th European Cup title. From 1995 to 1997 he was the inspirational captain of the men's British Athletic team and is the only European to have run under 10 seconds.
