Denise Lewis OBE

Multiple gold medal winning star of the heptathlon

Denise Lewis

Olympic heptathlon gold medal winner Denise Lewis is an Olympic speaker with an amazing story to tell.

After winning at the Commonwealth Games in 1994 and getting a bronze at the Atlanta Olympics in 1996 (where she was the only British female to win a medal), Denise became an Olympic goddess in Sydney in 2000. Not only did she get her gold medal but she also achieved a British record of 6,831 points.

Denise Lewis was awarded the MBE in 1999 and this was upgraded to an OBE in 2001 after her Olympic victory. After retiring in 2005, she became a TV pundit commentating on athletics and then began to forge her career as an Olympic speaker, where her inspirational success story has impressed audiences of many kinds at various types of events.

It would be wrong to remember Denise just for her Olympic medals. At the World Championships in both 1997 and 1999 she won silver medals, at the Commonwealth Games in both 1994 and 1997 she won gold, as she did at the 1998 European Championships and the 1995 World Cup. And she won another silver medal at the 2003 European Cup in Brixen.
