Sports personality and Olympic medalist Steve Cram will be taking the podium as the guest speaker at next year’s Birmingham Law Society Legal Awards.
Steve is one of Britain’s most successful athletes, winning six gold medals at Commonwealth, European and World Championships and a silver medal at the 1984 Olympics.
A three times world record holder, Steve was part of a trio of British-middle distance runners who dominated the track throughout the 1980s, running alongside Steve Ovett and Lord Sebastian Coe.
In 1983, he won BBC Sports Personality of the year and was awarded an MBE three years later. Now the BBC’s chief athletics commentator, he has co-presented the last three Summer Olympics and is a regular contributor to BBC Radio 5 Live.
Steve will speak at the Birmingham Law Society’s annual awards ceremony, which takes place at the ICC on the 20th March 2014.
