Biography

www.chrishoy.com

Sir Chris Hoy, multiple world and Olympic champion track cyclist, was born and raised in Edinburgh and has represented Great Britain and Scotland throughout his career, winning four Olympic, 11 world and two Commonwealth titles to date.

Hoy won his first Olympic gold medal at Athens 2004, and four years later in Beijing he became Scotland’s most successful Olympian and the first Brit since 1908 to win three gold medals at a single Games.

Hoy’s achievements make him the most successful Olympic male cyclist of all time.

Following his hat-trick of gold medals in Beijing, Hoy was voted 2008 BBC Sports Personality of the Year and he received a Knighthood in the 2009 New Year Honours List.

Hoy admits to taking up cycling after watching E.T. as a child.

At the 2012 Olympic Games in London, Hoy won gold in keirin and gold in the team sprint with partners Philip HIndes and Jason Kenny.
