European and Commonwealth - Sally Gunnell OBE is an inspirational figure in British athletics.
An ideal choice of motivational keynote speaker for corporate audiences, Sally’s presentations relate to a wide cross-section of businesses in all sectors, providing realistic goal-setting and easy-to-follow concepts that can be applied to the broadest spectrum possible.
By her own admission, Sally’s rise to the pinnacle of her sport was won through hard graft and a firm grip over her own mind. On her way to success, she contended with injuries, athletes that she saw as more naturally gifted, and a relatively modest support infrastructure compared to her peers. This all culminated at the 1992 Barcelona Olymic games where Sally won 400metres hurdles gold.
Following her retirement from international athletics, Sally developed a new career as a television presenter and motivational speaker.
She became part of the BBC Sport team and is a regular fixture on Athletics programmes, interviewing athletes on the finish line and bringing the trackside atmosphere into millions of living rooms across the UK.
