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.
His start into television and entertainment began when he presented THE BIG BREAKFAST. This was followed with a full time position as co-presenter with BBC’S RECORD BREAKERS. He has presented various children’s programmes and appears regularly on game and chat shows where the brief is "fun and entertainment".
He is also an accredited personal coach, having qualified at the Hudson Institute of Santa Barbara. He is one of only 4 qualified Hudson Institute coaches in the UK.
He is the founding Director and Chairman of REACH (Rural Empowerment and Community Health) and a NGO (Non-governmental organisation) in Nigeria, designed to prevent water born diseases, and develop social cohesion.
