Biography

Chris HOY

Sir Chris Hoy wept as he accepted his sixth gold medal at London 2012 to become Britain’s most decorated Olympian – the pinnacle of his dazzling track cycling career thus far.

It was a rare display of emotion from the usually taciturn Scot whose entire professional ethos is based on control – but one that belied the years of dedication and perseverance leading to that tearful moment on the Velodrome podium.

Chris Hoy is a born athlete. In his teenage years he was a star rugby player at George Watson’s College in Edinburgh, his home city. Aged 14 he competed for both Scotland and Great Britain in BMX, becoming Scottish champion and UK number two. There was mountain biking too – and to cap it all off he won a British Championship silver medal rowing for Scotland in the coxless pairs.

But in 1992 the future Olympic star turned his attention squarely to land rather than water and focused on track cycling, first with the Dunedin club, then The City of Edinburgh Racing Squad, at the time the UK’s most successful cycling team.
