Diane Modahl MBE is one of Britain’s most successful 800m runners. She won a Gold Medal at the 1990 Commonwealth Games and followed this up with a further Silver and Bronze Medal. She now runs her own Sports Foundation to inspire young people.
Diane has competed in a staggering 4 Olympic Games, from 1988 to 2000. As one of Britain’s most successful middle distance runners, she held both the British and Commonwealth record for the 800m.
After retiring from athletics, Diane went on to found the Diane Modahl Sports Foundation: A North West coordinated approach to identifying, developing and sustaining sporting talent for 1,000 young athletes on the doorstep of 100 local communities.
The Diane Modahl Sports Foundation (DMSF) is a registered charity which works with young people from disadvantaged areas across the North West, enabling them to make the most of themselves in sport, school and life. Working with some of the North West’s most disadvantaged young people, the organisation has provided opportunity to aspire to and achieve potential.
Diane’s integrity in the face of sporting adversity coupled with her role as a successful businesswoman lend a passion to her speeches that serve to inspire and entertain all who listen.
In June 2018 Diane was awarded an MBE for services to Sport and Young People in North West England via the Diane Modahl foundation.
‘Diane was an absolute highlight of our conference, delivering an engaging and inspirational talk. She had a fantastic warmth and authenticity that really helped people relate to her experiences and absorb the messages she delivered. It was also impressive how she related her talk to the work of Saxon Weald and the challenges we face. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.’ – Saxon Weald
We just wanted to write and thank you for delivering a fabulous talk to our scholarship athletes. You where truly inspirational.
