Distinguished Speaker Luncheon with Rt Hon Lord Coe, CH KBE

Please email yammie@britcham.com for more information

Lord Coe is the President of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) and the Executive Chairman of CSM Sport & Entertainment. As an athlete he won Olympic gold medals in the 1500 metres in 1980 and 1984 and set 12 middle-distance world records. He went on to become the Member of Parliament for Falmouth and Camborne and later chaired the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG).

Sebastian Coe made his first mark as an athlete in 1977, winning the 800m at the European Indoor Championship, and just two years later he broke the 800m, 1500m and mile world records in the space of 41 days. At the Olympic Games in Moscow in 1980, Coe won the gold medal in the 1500m, having won silver in the 800m. Four years later in Los Angeles he also won silver in the 800m before becoming the only man to successfully defend the 1500m title.

Coe retired from athletics in 1990 and two years later was elected as Member of Parliament for Falmouth and Camborne, a seat he held until 1997, when he became Private Secretary to William Hague, the Leader of the Opposition. In 2000 he was appointed a life peer and took the title of Lord Coe of Ranmore.

In 2004 Coe took over as Chairman of the London bid to host the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. London was appointed as host city in July 2005 and Coe chaired LOCOG, which successfully delivered the Games in the summer of 2012. Following the London Games Coe became Chairman of the British Olympic Association and Executive Chairman of CSM Sport & Entertainment. He was elected President of the IAAF in 2015, having been a Vice President since 2007.
