Sir Anthony McCoy OBE is the world’s greatest jump jockey. He has dominated his sport for over 2 decades, making him one of the UK's highest profile sporting talents. Sir Anthony, also known as “AP”, is the only sportsman of his kind to have been awarded ‘BBC Sports Personality of the Year’ in 2010, to receive the ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ at SPOTY in 2015 & ‘BT’s Outstanding Contribution to Sport Award’.
Sir Anthony ended a truly phenomenal career last April as Champion Jockey for the 20th consecutive year, recording 4348 wins (which includes the 2010 Grand National, the prestigious Cheltenham Gold Cup, Champion Hurdle, Queen Mother Champion Chase & King George VI Chase). He spent his career setting records which will not be broken in our lifetime -a tribute to his stamina, endurance, motivation and dedication to the world of sport.
He has recently swapped the whip for the microphone, becoming a very popular presenter for Channel 4 Racing. Sir Anthony is an exclusive columnist for The Times newspaper, he is President of the Professional Jockey’s Association, a Trustee for the Sir Peter O'Sullevan Charitable Trust and a Global Ambassador for Laureus, Albert Bartlett and William Hill.
Sir Anthony is an exceptional key-note, after-dinner, corporate and motivational speaker. He also speaks at global “Sport Meets Business” forums & events. His unparalleled experience, humour and personality endears him to any audience –his fear of failure, his drive to be the best, his mental / physical / motivational techniques, his anecdotal stories from the saddle, breaking his bones over 700 times & and his insight into the pressures and dangers of the sport makes for a lively Q&A.
