About

Goldie Sayers is a three-time Olympian, 11 time UK Champion and British record holder for the javelin.

She won an Olympic medal at the Beijing Olympics with a British record throw of 65.75m.

She represented Great Britain for over ten years and captained the British team on numerous occasions, most notably in 2014 when the GB team won their greatest ever medal haul at the European Championships.

Goldie was a keen sportsperson, competing for her county and region at hockey, tennis and netball. She was also national under 11 table tennis champion. Goldie dreamt of competing for her country at sport whilst watching the Barcelona Olympics as a ten year old. Three years later, she was given a javelin to take home over the school Easter holidays which ignited a passion for throwing that started whilst launching apples in her family’s garden. Her dream became a reality soon after when she was selected for the World Junior Athletics Championships as a 15 year old and eight years after practising with her javelin in the back garden, she was walking out into a 60,000 seater capacity stadium at her first Olympic Games in Athens (2004).

Since then she has competed at three Olympic Games, five World Championships and three Commonwealth Games.

She is a passionate high performance coach who loves to get the best out of her clients. She coaches and mentors young athletes and sits on the Board of the British Olympic Association Team GB Athletes’ Commission.

As well as her love for property, health and sport, she enjoys live music (having grown up in a very musical family), good food and cinema.
