Tim Brabants Biography

A doctor by profession but best known for Olympic success as a flatwater canoeist and kayaker, Tim Brabants is a superb keynote motivational speaker and has been known to host a number of award evenings.

He won the first ever kayaking Gold for Great Britain at the Beijing Olympics in the 1,000m sprint event. He also won 2 bronze medals at the Sydney Olympics for the individual kayak 500m and 1000m.

The 2004 Olympics however were a disappointment. Tim had won a European silver medal at Poznań earlier in the season and was the fastest qualifier for the Olympic K-1 1000m final with the world's fastest time of 3'24.412. However in the final itself he trailed home in fifth place, six seconds off his best time.

Tim took a year off from competitive canoeing in 2005 to complete his medical studies at the highly regarded University of Nottingham followed by a spell as a doctor in Jersey. ...
