We’re happy to introduce Amy as one of our brand ambassadors. Her winning mindset makes her a perfect addition to the team.

Amy reached speeds of up to 92mph to complete the ice run in less than 54 seconds, becoming the first British Winter Olympic winner since Robin Cousins in 1980, and the first British woman to take gold in the snow since Jeannette Altwegg in 1952.

The achievement continues to inspire athletes today. We’re super excited that Amy’s helping to wave the Play-Ex flag.

Speeding into the record books

Amy switched from running to snow sports when she discovered the bobsleigh training facility at the University of Bath.

It was a smart move; after placing second at the World Student Games and World Junior Championships, Amy pushed on to land the silver medal at the 2009 World Championships. But the best was yet to come. At the 21st Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Amy kept her nerve as she shot down the fastest toboggan on the planet. She made the 1,450m descent in 53.68 seconds, breaking the track record by 0.15 seconds.

Today, Amy is a motivational speaker, sports commentator and TV presenter.
