JLT Condor’s Ed Clancy Adds To Medal Tally With OBE Award

24 March 2017

  • Three time Olympic gold medallist and five-time world champion now sets sights on Tokyo 2020

JLT Condor cyclist Ed Clancy has added to his prestigious haul of Olympic medals by accepting an OBE at Buckingham Palace today.

Ed Clancy is already the holder of three Olympic gold medals and a bronze medal, and is a five-time world champion – more recently setting a new world record and winning his third Olympic gold medal in the men's team pursuit at the Rio Olympics last year.

Ed is also a mainstay of the British racing scene and rides as part of UK’s longest standing UCI Continental cycling team, JLT Condor, of which JLT is a principle partner.

Accepting his award today, Ed Clancy said: ‘You don’t think about awards like this when you train for an Olympic Games. I love what I do and the old saying is ‘if you love what you do then you never work a day in your life’. I’ve certainly never worked a day in my life!

‘Being awarded an OBE is special, not just for me, but for those close to me as well. I’d like to thank everyone for their help, support and generosity over the last three Olympic Games and it’s occasions like this that allow you to stop and take stock of what you’ve achieved and who has helped you to get there.

‘My sights are now set on Tokyo 2020, trying to win a 4th consecutive Olympic Gold medal, keeping that British flag flying in the velodrome, and helping to develop the sport of cycling in the UK.’
