Athlete Denise Lewis was born 27th August 1972, in Birmingham. She is the golden girl of the moment in British athletics after having won an Olympic Gold in Sydney, which she adds to her bronze in Atlanta, two world silvers and two Commonwealth golds.

Her great breakthrough had come in 1994 when she won gold at the Commonwealth Games in Victoria, Canada. Denise, who competes for Birchfield Harriers, has progressed to the highest world-class at the heptathlon. She achieved a best of 5277 points in her first year at the event in 1989 and set British records in 1996 and a Commonwealth record in 1997. She was Britain's woman athlete of the year in 1996, when she was the country's only female Olympic athletics medallist. She won the World silver medal the following year and in 1998, despite missing crucial weeks through injury, she won double gold at Europeans and Commonwealth Games. She was awarded the MBE in the 1999 New Year Honours - and 12 months later, following her Olympic triumph, the OBE.

Off the track she's launched a sideline as a model, becoming one of the first 'pin-ups' in modern sport.
