Bryan Clay is a two-time Olympic Medalist, author, entrepreneur, husband and father of 3. A track and field athlete, he is known for his determination, dedicated work ethic, strong faith, and passion for giving back. During his time at Azusa Pacific University, he received 23 All-American honors and helped his team sweep the 2002 NAIA indoor and outdoor track and field titles.
His exceptional skill and hard work took him to the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, where he captured the silver medal, followed by winning the decathlon at the 2005 World Championships in Helsinki. Clay posted his third U.S. championship at the 2008 Olympic Trials and went on to the Beijing Games, where he won the gold medal and title of World’s Greatest Athlete. For his efforts on and off the track, he has been recognized with numerous awards, including the 2008 Jesse Owens Award, the 2009 Jim Thorpe All-Around Award, and the 2011 Humanitarian of the Year Award.
His book, ‘Redemption: A Rebellious Spirit, a Praying Mother, and the Unlikely Path to Olympic Gold,’ tells the story of the most unlikely Olympic decathlete in history.
