C4 presenter and Observer columnist Rick Edwards interviews silver Olympic medal-winning sprinter Kriss Akabusi.

Who is Kriss Akabusi?

Kriss is famous for his achievements in athletics where his greatest individual triumph was his Gold Medal in the 1990 European Championships when he also beat David Hemery's 22 year old British Record.

He began his international athletic career in 1983 as a member of the 4x400 metre relay squad and will probably always be remembered for helping Britain clinch the Gold and beat the Americans in the World Championships 4x400 metre relay in Tokyo in 1991.

In 1992 as 3 x Olympic medallist, World, European and Commonwealth Champion Kriss was awarded the MBE by Her Majesty The Queen in her Birthday Honours List in recognition of his services to the country through athletics.

Kriss is currently the CEO of The Akabusi Company, a corporate communications and training company where his marvellous personality and reputation as a fantastic public speaker has made him a very popular and attractive advocate.

Who is Rick Edwards?

A Cambridge University graduate with a degree in Natural Sciences, Rick began his career in front of the cameras hosting E4's music content. From here he swiftly moved on to the Channel 4 show Freshly Squeezed before becoming one of the T4 presenting family in 2007. Since then Rick has fronted a diverse range of programming for Channel 4, from game shows to movie specials and music series to sports programmes. Amongst his most recent presenting credits are That Paralympic Show on Channel 4 and E4 entertainment series Tool Academy.

Having done stand-up at university and on the London circuit, Rick is making a tentative return to being funny - devising and starring in Rick And Peter, sitcom pilot for C4's Comedy Lab.

Amongst his other interests are the environment (he is a regular on the Observer Ethical Awards judging panel). fashion (which led to a monthly column on men's style for The Observer Magazine), mathematics (his mental arithmetic is impeccable), and snooker (highest break: 32).
