Sir Anthony 'AP' McCoy is the world’s greatest jump jockey. He has dominated his sport for over two 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’ in 2015 & ‘BT’s Outstanding Contribution to Sport Award’.
Sir Anthony ended a truly phenomenal career in 2015 as Champion Jockey for the 20th consecutive year, recording 4348 wins (includings the 2010 Grand National, the Cheltenham Gold Cup and King George VI Chase). He spent his career setting records - 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 exceptional keynote, after dinner, corporate and motivational speaker. He also speaks at global 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 certainly makes for a lively Q&A.
