Hi - I’m Amy Williams, the girl whose gold-medal-winning skeleton race at the Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010 projected me into the public view overnight. I retired as an athlete in 2012 & have spent the years since doing tv presenting roles, public appearances and motivational speaking.
Looking ahead I hope to always be involved within sport, to be an ambassador in the public eye and to encourage and motivate the young and old, in whatever walk of life, either in schools, business or companies.
Besides a range of sporting interests, such as horse riding, I’m also a keen artist, I try to get my creative juices flowing when time allows! I'm passionate about the conservation of our wildlife & looking after the world we live in. I loved my experiences in the Arctic and in Africa on the different TV shows and I hope to be able to continue some more adventures combining all these loves.
