Amy Williams is British former skeleton racer and 2010, Olympic gold medallist.
Since retiring from full-time sports, Amy has developed her media career and is now in high demand hosting and speaking for any number of high profile blue chip organisations.
After returning from Vancouver clutching what was to be the only British medal won at the Winter Olympics in 2010, Amy became the first British solo champion for 30 years, and the first female winner for 58 years. However, injury cut short her quest to defend this title and Amy retired from Skeleton in May 2012.
Following her sporting success, Amy has forged a successful career, in both the corporate and broadcast worlds. A regular guest presenter on BBC Ski Sunday, Amy headed to the Sochi Olympic Games 2014, as a Team GB mentor and BBC Presenter, providing critically acclaimed coverage from the Games on the BBC. Upon her return, Amy was signed as the new female presenter for Channel 5’s primetime hit ‘The Gadget Show’, and joined the team in April 2014.
An inspiring and exciting story, Amy is in high demand by corporate clients and has undertaken a number of hosting and keynote responsibilities for a variety of blue-chip companies. In December 2014, Amy launched ‘The Skeleton Experience’, in partnership with Momentum Ski, a bespoke experience weekend in Igls, Austria. This provided participants with the opportunity to experience the Skeleton and Bobsleigh under her expert tutelage.
