Broadcaster and Former British Athlete
FEE : £5k – £10k+

TOPICS:

Colin Jackson is without a doubt one of the greatest athletes that Great Britain has ever produced, Colin called time on his outstanding athletics career in front of an adoring home crowd at the World Indoor Championships in Birmingham in 2003.

After more than a decade spent at the very pinnacle of his sport, it was a fitting end to a glittering career.

110m hurdler Colin ranked in the world top 10 for 16 years, was World No.1 from 1992-1994 and, for the last 7 years of his career, was never out of the world’s top 3 and since setting a European junior record of 13.44 in 1986, went on to set 7 European, 8 Commonwealth and 9 UK records at 110mh. Colin still holds the World Record over 60mh indoors (7.30, Sindelfingen 1994) and, has only recently been robbed of his 13 years World Record over 110mh outdoors (12.91, World Title, Stuttgart 1993).

On retirement, Colin Jackson was a natural choice to become one of the key members of the BBC’s sports production team and he continues to cover all of their Athletics output as a BBC pundit and presenter. Covering the Athens Olympics was obviously a highlight early in his broadcasting career and since then he has been an integral part of the BBC output for the 2006 Torino Winter Olympics and European championships as well as most recently, the 2012 London Olympics

Book Colin Jackson

Colin draws from his long and successful career which epitomised the emotional ups and downs of the ultimate champion athlete. He guides you through the lows of his defeat at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics and onto the highs of the World Championships that followed.

He speaks of the lessons he learnt and how he turned his bitter defeat into renewed motivation and focus. He moves on to his steady relationship with his coach, Malcolm Arnold, his continually rising standards and consistent application in his quest for excellence.

Colin discusses the importance of setting realistic goals and visualising and focusing on the end result, no matter what. All of these factors contribute to the winning formula the British public witnessed for so long and now make for a truly inspiring motivational pitch.
