Australian Sprinter & Olympic, World and Commonwealth Medalist / Sydney
As one of the country’s most recognisable track and field athletes, John Steffensen has won more international medals than any other Australian male sprinter.
Since retiring in 2014, John is still a force to be reckoned with, working with young Australian athletic talent within his high-performance coaching company, Just Sprint.
As well as coaching and mentoring aspiring athletes, John lets his charisma shine through his regular co-hosting spot on Nine’s Wide World of Sport as well as his work as a reporter for cycling Tour Down Under in Adelaide.
John does not shy away from the camera, appearing on various reality TV shows, including the upcoming season of SAS Australia and as runner-up on Celebrity Apprentice Australia in 2013.
Family is something John holds very close to his heart, with his beautiful wife Sarah, and his two adorable kids always cheering him on from the sideline.
