Sir Chris Hoy MBE is Great Britain's joint most successful Olympic athlete of all time, with six gold medals and one silver, and together with his 11 World Championship gold medals he is the world's most successful track cyclist of all time.
He won his first Olympic gold medal in Athens 2004 in the 1km time trial before switching his focus to three other track sprint events - the Keirin, Sprint and Team Sprint for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. He went on to win a gold medal in all three events to become the first British Olympian in one hundred years to win three gold medals at a single Games.
Sir Chris Hoy was voted 2008 BBC Sports Personality of the Year, and he was also awarded a Knighthood in the 2009 New Year Honours list. In 2012 at his home Olympic Games in London, Chris won his fifth and sixth gold medals - in the Keirin and Team Sprint - becoming Great Britain's most successful Olympic athlete ever.
Following his retirement from cycling in 2013, he has written an autobiography 'Chris Hoy: The Autobiography', co-authored the Flying Fergus series with Jo Nadin and most recently the cycling guide 'How To Ride a Bike' in 2018.
In June 2016, Chris added to his record list of achievements when he finished the world's most demanding motorsport endurance race, the Le Mans 24 Hours, on his debut. Chris was also a key part of the BBC TV's commentary and punditry team covering the 2016 Rio Olympics and 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
