James Cracknell MBE

Winning rowing Gold in Athens in 2004 in one of the most heart stopping races in history confirmed James Cracknell as one of the most successful and inspiring athletes of the modern era. Currently Double Olympic Champion and World Record holder along with partner Matthew Pinsent, he is one of Britain’s true sporting heroes. Since retiring from his 13 year international career James has distinguished himself as a very special and inspiring sportsman, athlete and adventurer. In 2010 James finished a phenomenal 12th in the Marathon de Sables (making him the highest placed Briton in its 25 year history). He had already entered the race ‘for fun’ when the Discovery Channel decided it was something that needed filming. Subsequently, he turned his attentions to a new challenge, James Cracknell Takes on America- racing to cycle, run, row and swim from LA to New York in record time. It was during this trip that James suffered a near fatal accident after being struck from behind by a truck while cycling through Arizona. After a difficult six-month recovery period, James ran the Canadian Yukon completing The Coldest Race on Earth. James’ outstanding sporting achievements, intelligence and good sense of humour have also made him popular choice of Corporate Speaker, and a great sporting after dinner speaker. With the ability to tailor his experiences to captivate and motivate a variety of audiences, James has inspired and entertained blue chip clients including BT, GlaxoSmithKline, Hewlett-Packard and McDonald’s. "James presentation was very well received by the Kelloggs sales conference. I have had excellent feedback from a lot of people. He came across as an articulate but very down to earth guy with a good level of humility. I found him very approachable, relaxed and flexible to fit in with our agenda. His presentation was strong in message but subtle, and being able to tell two different extraordinary stories gave him real credibility as an inspirational speaker.He certainly inspired our team." Dave Wain Sales Operations Manager, Kellogg's "James went down very well indeed. His speech was excellent, he passed his medals round and he took time after his speech to chat and sign autographs. Feedback so far from those that attended felt it was the most successful Dinner to date. Please pass on our thanks to James for making the 10th Anniversary of the Ambassadors Dinner such a triumph!"
