Sally has a special place in the nation’s hearts as one of Britain’s most popular sportswomen. She is the only woman in history to hold all four major track titles concurrently – Olympic, World, European and Commonwealth – plus the 400 metres hurdles world record.
To many she was ‘the girl next door’, the daughter of an Essex farmer whose warm and easy-going manner belied her incredible sporting achievements. Her career on and off the track provides a unique insight into achieving a balance of life and proven recipes for success and fulfilment. During her career she adopted key principles and routines with her ‘team’ that delivered the results most people can only dream of.
Following her retirement from international athletics, Sally developed a new career as a television presenter and motivational speaker. She has written four books on fitness, health, self-fulfilment and well-being. Sally remains as popular in retirement as she was on the track – a true star, who has not let her success change either her values or down to earth approach.
The popular athlete is highly sought-after by organisations eager to benefit from her motivational message gained through her experience as one of the World’s top sportswomen. Sally’s presentation is unique to her. After achieving her ultimate goal – an Olympic Gold Medal – she managed to reset her sights and step up to an even higher level the following year to win the World Title whilst breaking the World Record Within her presentation she talks about the pressures of being successful and the ability to keep herself motivated.
