Christine Ohuruogu MBE is a British athlete specializing in 400m and is a former Olympic, two time World Champion and Commonwealth Champion. She is also Great Britain's most successful female athlete with a total of 26 medals won at major International Championships, the first British female to win three global titles and the first British female to win medals at three consecutive Olympic Games.
Following her stellar athletics career, Christine graduated in 2019 with a degree in Law from Queen Mary's University with a view to pursuing a new vocation in Law. Coupled with an interest in Law, Christine sought to use her love for sport, the knowledge gleaned from over 20 years on international competition with the ability to achieve success at the highest levels over a sustained period to demonstrate the strength of the inherent and invaluable skills found in sport to significantly transcend the boundaries of sport.
Having attended UCL where she read Linguistics and graduated in 2005, she has always maintained a close relationship with UCL and will endeavour to bring a fresh perspective to the Council using experience as an elite athlete and that found in sports governance.
