Amy is a celebrated British athlete who won a gold medal in the women’s skeleton event at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. This victory made her the first British individual gold medallist at a Winter Olympics in 30 years and the first British woman to win an individual gold medal at the Winter Olympics since 1952.

Originally a 400m runner, Amy switched to skeleton in 2002 and quickly excelled in the sport. Her gold medal win was particularly notable as she set a track record twice during the competition.

Amy retired from competitive skeleton racing in 2012. After her retirement, Amy transitioned into a successful career as a media personality and television presenter, appearing on shows like The One Show, Jonathan Ross, Blue Peter, Top Gear, Question of Sport, The Gadget Show, A League of Their One, Alone in the Wild, 71 Degrees North and On the Road with Amy Williams. I was the Glamour magazine Sportswoman of the Year, and I have presented awards to others at the 2010 Press Awards and at the BAFTAs. She also authored a book titled, Talent to Triumph.

Amy was awarded the MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours of 2010 and was further honoured to become the first-ever female Freeman of the City of Bath and was short-listed for the 2010 BBC Sports Personality of the Year and received the Daily Mail’s Ian Wooldridge Award.
