AP McCoy

(20 Jan 2016)

AP McCoy OBE is the world’s greatest jump jockey. He has dominated his sport for over 2 decades, making him one of the UK's highest profile sporting talents. McCoy is the only sportsman of his kind to have been awarded ‘BBC Sports Personality of the Year’ in 2010, to receive the ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ at SPOTY in 2015 & ‘BT’s Outstanding Contribution to Sport Award’

McCoy ended a truly phenomenal career last April as Champion Jockey for the 20th consecutive year, recording 4348 wins (which includes the 2010 Grand National, the prestigious Cheltenham Gold Cup, Champion Hurdle, Queen Mother Champion Chase & King George VI Chase). He spent his career setting records which will not be broken in our lifetime -a tribute to his stamina, endurance, motivation and dedication to the world of sport.

He has recently swapped the whip for the microphone, becoming a very popular presenter for Channel 4 Racing. McCoy is an exclusive columnist for The Times newspaper, he is President of the Professional Jockey’s Association, a Trustee for the Sir Peter O'Sullivan Charitable Trust and a Global Ambassador for Laureus, Albert Bartlett and William Hill. 

McCoy is an exceptional key-note, after-dinner, corporate and motivational speaker. He also speaks at global “Sport Meets Business” forums & events. His unparalleled experience, humour and personality endears him to any audience –his fear of failure, his drive to be the best, his mental / physical / motivational techniques, his anecdotal stories from the saddle, breaking his bones over 700 times & and his insight into the pressures and dangers of the sport makes for a lively Q&A. 

A documentary style film about McCoy is currently top of the itunes film chart, having been shown recently in over 200 cinemas across the UK and Ireland. “Being AP” has premiered at the Toronto Film Festival (just 20 from 6000 films were chosen), in Dublin and in London. He has also written autobiographies such as "Winner: My Racing Life" and a fictional book "Taking the Fall".
