Linford Christie
Linford Christie
Britain and Europe's most successful sprinter ever

Linford Christie was the first of a new breed of athlete that defied age as a barrier to perform, winning his first major title at the age of 26. He went on to become the World's No 1 in the most fiercely competitive and prestigious event in athletics, the men's 100m.

Linford's impressive title collection includes an Olympic, a World Championship, three European, three Commonwealth, ten European Cup and four World Cup medals. Linford was the first man to retain the World Cup 100m title and in 1997 won a record 7th European Cup title. From 1995 to 1997 he was the inspirational captain of the men's British Athletic team and is the only European to have run under 10 seconds.

Earlier in the year, Linford interrupted a training camp in Australia, to commentate on the World Indoor Championships in London and watched Jamie Baulch win his first major individual 400m title in Maebashi. Linford has a number of new commercial opportunities later in the year. Linford is sponsored by Puma and Volvo where he works on their Environmental / Children projects.
