Kriss Akabusi is famous for his achievements in athletics where his greatest individual triumph was his gold medal in the 1990 European Championships when he also beat David Hemery’s 22 year old British Record.
He began his international athletic career in 1983 as a member of the 4x400 metre relay squad and will probably always be remembered for helping Britain clinch the gold and beat the Americans in the World Championships 4x400 metre relay in Tokyo in 1991. In 1992 as 3 x Olympic medalist, World, European and Commonwealth champion, Kriss was awarded the MBE by Her Majesty The Queen in her Birthday Honours List in recognition of his services to the country through athletics.
His career in television and entertainment began when he presented The Big Breakfast. This was followed with a full time position as co-presenter with BBC’s Record Breakers. He has presented various children’s programmes and appears regularly on game and chat shows where the brief is 'fun and entertainment'.Kriss’ infectious enthusiasm ensures that the messages hit home and motivate the audience.Kriss’ inspirational story is legendary and works well as a keynote at the start of a conference to fire up the delegates or as an end note to close the meeting. I’ll leave the audience on a high, ready to deliver success in the arena.
