About Linford Christie :

Undoubtedly Europe’s greatest ever 100m sprinter, Linford became the Olympic 100m Champion after winning the Gold Medal in Barcelona, 1992. In an International career spanning seventeen years, Linford competed over 60 times for his country and won more major championship medals, 23, than any other British sprinter.

Linford is the only British athlete to have won Gold medals in the 100 metres at all four major competitions and was the first European to have run sub ten seconds. His fastest time 9.87 seconds, recorded when he won the 1993 World Championship in Stuttgart, is the European record.

Amongst the numerous awards bestowed upon Linford was the prestigious 1993 ‘BBC Sports Personality of the Year’ and ‘European Athlete of the Year’.

Now retired, but still keeping fit, Linford’s a familiar face on television, having presented three series of ‘Linford’s Record Breakers’ on BBC1 and ‘Garden Invaders’ amongst others. He has worked as a technical commentator in Athletics and has presented many sports specific programmes over the years. More recently he has returned from a stint in the Australian jungle as part of ITV’s ‘I’m a celebrity get me out of here’.

Linford’s success in Athletics has continued since his retirement but now in a coaching role, having coached a number of top British athletes to success, including Olympic medals for both Darren Campbell and Katherine Merry. He is currently coaching some of Britain’s leading international athletes including Olympic Champion Mark Lewis Francis, Commonwealth Gold and Silver Medalist Katherine Endacott, World Championships Bronze medallist Conrad Williams, Commonwealth Gold Medalist Laura Turner and European U23 Champion Toby Sandeman.

Aside from coaching, Linford has an active role in his own Sports Management Company “Nuff” Respect. He also spends a lot of time supporting numerous charities, particularly The Rainbow Trust. Linford has become renowned for his passion for gardening and has written a regular problem page for The Guardian as well as a guide for top Gardening gadgets.

Linford and his protégé, Darren Campbell, launched Street Athletics in June 2005 in conjunction with Manchester City Council, in an attempt to find the raw sprinting talent that is being lost to other sports and computer games. The scheme was extended to cover 4 cities in 2006. Since 2005 the project has grown and become more successful, visiting its greatest amount of venues, 22, in 2009.
