Darren Campbell – Olympic gold medallist and a sprinter who always gave his all and retired having won medals at all four majors – is a motivational speaker of the highest calibre.
By 1996, Campbell had lowered his 100m best to 10.17, but it was during the 4 x 100m relay in the 1996 Olympics when he was involved in failing to pass the baton in the first round and Britain crashed out, that he realised that he would have to raise his game further to ensure the success had had always dreamt of.
At the Olympic Games in Sydney in 2000, Campbell won silver in the 200m final. It was the first time a British man had made the Olympic 200m podium since Alan Wells 20 years earlier in Moscow. Campbell was ecstatic, but still determined to achieve more.
It was the Olympic sprint relay final, where the USA were the clear favourites. But along with the quartet of Jason Gardener, Marlon Devonish and Mark Lewis-Francis, the Brits’ speed and brilliant baton changing took them to victory. It was the crowning moment of Darren’s career.
Darren retired from athletics to pursue his next goal, and as a successful businessman he demonstrates that with passion, a zest for life and boundless energy, you can beat the odds and make it big!
