"Chris really engages the participants from the first moment with fun activities. There was more smiles and laughter at this session than we have witnessed for quite some time." Bev Cooper, SHIOW Development Officer
"Injury, Heart Surgery and no funding made it almost impossible...but now I'm British Champion on the Road 2 Rio, and grateful I came out the other side!"
At school, Chris wasn't one of the best sports people, nor was he very confident but at 6 foot 10 inches he was picked up and came through the UK Sport talent ID programme 'Sporting Giants' launched by Sir Steve Redgrave in search of athletes for the London 2012 Olympics. 3800 potential athletes were trialed and tested leaving Chris amongst 1 of 4 who made it into the GB squad at 19 years old.
Chris is now in the number 1 ranked GB pair on the 'Road 2 Rio' striving for the 2016 Olympics. He competes over the world for Great Britain, on the World Tour and European Tour.
Chris helped in making an impact to young people’s lives and raising aspirations whilst working on the Sporting Champions programme, and is now looking to inspire your audience by sharing his secret of what it takes to be the best you can!
