James Cracknell OBE won Olympic Gold medals in rowing at the 2000 Sydney (with Steve Redgrave) and the 2004 Athen’s Olympic Games.

After retiring from competitive rowing in 2006, James Cracknell, together with Ben Fogle, completed the BBC documented The Race Across the Atlantic. The two co-wrote a book on their experience, titled The Crossing: Conquering the Atlantic in the World’s Toughest Rowing Race.

Pairing up with Dr. Ed Coats, they successfully took part in the Amundsen Omega3 South Pole Race. Following this, James wrote Race to the Pole.

Two years later saw him attempt crossing America by means of cycling, running, rowing and swimming from Los Angeles to New York in a world record time. A near fatal accident, however, resulted in a six-month recovery period. Undaunted, James soon found himself in the Canadian Yukon where he completed The Coldest Race on Earth broadcast on Discovery.

This led to his fronting a series for Discovery entitled ‘World’s Toughest Expeditions’ in 2012 which saw James Cracknell push himself to the limits. 2013, however, had him pair up with Fogle once more in the BBC documentary Ben & James Versus the Arabian Desert.

2015 saw James in partnership with JML as the Nutriblitzer and Awesome Gym ambassador while facing campaigns for both Karrimor and Biosynergy. At the same time, he starred in a sports-science programme, Eternal Glory, that saw him compete against other former athletes.

2016 had James partner with American Express with the focus on uncovering travel adventures and destinations that can be enjoyed by all while making people aware of the available traveling opportunities. The year also saw him announced ambassador for Renault, sporting events featuring the brand throughout the UK, and authoring reports in collaboration with the Policy Exchange.
