It might be easy to say “a dozen gold medals” but Olympic speaker and member of the Great Britain cycling team Ed Clancy MBE has shown just how much commitment, professionalism and hard work an athlete has to possess to achieve such an incredibly high level of success.
Pride of place among the 12 golds are two that Ed won at the Olympic Games – one in Beijing in 2008 and one at the London 2012 Games (where he also won a bronze). In the World Championships, he managed five golds, three silvers and a bronze while in the European Elite Championships he collected another staggering five golds and a bronze medal between 2010 and 2014.
Add to this the silver medal Ed won at the 2014 Commonwealth Games and it’s easy to see why audiences love to hear the stories this Olympic speaker has to tell.
Previously a member of the British Cycling Academy – which also included such major stars as Geraint Thomas and Mark Cavendish – Clancy is the first man out in the team pursuit and is well-known for combining an incredible sprint with impressive endurance.
As if being on the 250m wooden tracks wasn’t sufficiently adrenalin-inducing, when Ed isn’t there he’s racing his own motorbikes or cars at motorsport events. In 2015 he underwent back surgery and he now spends an increasing amount of time as an Olympic speaker at a range of events.
