Sir Chris is the most decorated British Olympian of all time and the most successful Olympic cyclist ever, with six Olympic, 11 world and two Commonwealth titles to his name.
He won his first Olympic gold medal at Athens 2004, and four years later in Beijing became Scotland’s most successful Olympian – and the first Brit since 1908 to win three gold medals at a single Games.
Following his hat-trick of gold medals in Beijing, Sir Chris was voted 2008 BBC Sports Personality of the Year. At the same awards in 2014, he received the Lifetime Achievement award. He also received a Knighthood in the 2009 New Year’s Honours List, following his MBE in 2005.
At the 2012 London Olympics, Sir Chris clinched gold in the team sprint with partners Philip Hindes and Jason Kenny. He also cycled to glory in the Keirin, giving him a total of six career golds and one silver.
