Steve Cram

One of the UK's most well known sporting people

  • Olympic, World, Commonwealth and European medalist 
  • Broke World records in the 1500m, 2000m and Mile, all within 19 days
  • One of the BBC's most respected presenters and commentators

As an athlete, Steve's phenomenal career was forged alongside Coe and Ovett to form a period of unprecedented success in British athletics. 

His many achievements include six Gold medals at the Commonwealth Games and the European and World Championships, a Silver medal at the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, and World records in the 1500m, 2000m and Mile - all recorded within 19 days. He was voted BBC Sports Personality of the Year in 1983 and awarded an MBE in 1986.

Since retiring from competitive athletics Steve has become a very successful television commentator and presenter and away from the track has only recently stepped down as chairman of the English Institute of Sport; a nationwide network of sport science and sports medical support services, designed to foster the talents of our elite athletes of all sports. 

Closer to home Steve is co-director of DS Media and Events, which organises mass participation races including the Kielder Marathon and Marathon of the North. He was honoured to accept the role of Chancellor of Sunderland University in 2008 and fulfills the role of chairman in his own children’s charity COCO, which he co-founded in 1999. To date the charity has raised over £2.5 million for disadvantaged children across the globe. 

He has worked with blue chip clients such as Aviva, HSBC , Allianz, Hewlett Packard and Samsung and currently represents Atos, Clydesdale/Yorkshire bank, SSE and Nike as ambassador for their brand and business. 

As a motivational speaker, his presentations draw on experiences and memorable accounts of the magnificent golden era of British Athletics and are extremely well delivered in an inspiring and motivational way. Steve examines the principles of success in the high performance environment and draws parallels with the business community from both a corporate and individual perspective. 

"Steve Cram was really inspirational speaker and I particularly like how the sporting theme connects to business. I personally would give it a score of 15 out of 10!!"
