The most successful Olympic cyclist of all time

One of Britian’s most decorated athletes

BBC & Sports Journalists Association Sports Personality of the Year (2008)

Sir Chris Hoy MBE is one of the most successful athletes in British sporting history. Ranked as the most decorated Olympic cyclist of all time, Chris holds a total of six gold and one silver medals for his track appearances at the 2004, 2008 and 2012 Olympic games. Chris is also an eleven time UCI Track Cycling World Champion.

In 2012 at his home Olympic Games in London, Chris won his fifth and sixth gold medals – in the Keirin and Team Sprint – becoming Great Britain’s most successful Olympic athlete of all time with six gold medals and one silver.

Following his historic hat-trick of gold medals in Beijing, Chris was voted 2008 BBC Sports Personality of the Year. He was also awarded a Knighthood in the 2009 New Year Honours list, capping an extraordinary year for the track cyclist from Edinburgh.

In 2005 he was awarded two Honorary Doctorates – one from the University of Edinburgh and another from Heriot-Watt University. He was also awarded an MBE in the New Year Honours List. In 2009 he was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the University of St Andrews.

Recently, Chris has founded and launched his own business in ‘HOY Bikes’, using his expertise to develop a new range of bikes and encourage people to get cycling.

Our Comment

"Chris is one of the most admired figures in British sport and was a star of the London 2012 games. His gripping story of what it takes to win, and keep on winning, for over a decade of sporting history is testament to human endurance and determination."
