Book Rebecca Adlington OBE

Motivational Speaker

Rebecca Adlington OBE is Great Britain’s most successful ever swimmer. She became a household name following her two gold medal winning performances at the Beijing Games in August 2008, and has been the nation’s darling ever since.

Rebecca Adlington’s unique blend of charisma and charm allied to her dedication and professionalism in the pool has made her a global superstar, and a role model for female athletes around the world.

Rebecca’s drive and thirst for success meant that she won a medal in each of the Olympic finals she swam. A four time Olympic medalist in the 400m and 800m Freestyle, she won two Gold medals in Beijing 2008 and two Bronze medals in London 2012.

Rebecca Adlington retired from elite swimming in 2013 and announced a vision for her legacy: Becky Adlington’s Swim Stars – a swimming initiative with the goal that every child in Britain will be able to swim 25 metres by the time they leave primary school. Her famous drive is now channelled into this vision, and given her track-record she is well placed to achieve her most challenging goal to date.

Following her success in Beijing, Adlington was awarded an OBE from the Queen at Buckingham Palace and accepted the Laureus World Sports Awards ‘Breakthrough of the Year Award’ from Sebastian Coe. Rebecca is an ambassador of the Encephalitis Society, a national charity and the only resource of its kind in the world supporting people affected by the illness.

In June 2016, Rebecca Adlington became a Patron of Women in Sport to help support the charity’s work in transforming sport for the benefit of every woman and girl in the UK.

Rebecca has also undertaken roles in swimming commentary and punditry – most recently for the BBC TV coverage of the 2017 World Championships in Budapest but also covered the 2016 Rio Olympics and 2015 World Championships – plus variety television, and she is an articulate and respected media performer.
