Anyika Onuora

Anyika Onuora was born in Liverpool and rose to prominence at the city’s famous Harriers club. Over a career spanning nearly two decades, Anyika was one of the fastest women in the world and featured at three Olympics, winning a 4x400m bronze medal at the 2016 Rio Games, as well as enjoying further medal success at the World Championships, European Championships and Commonwealth Games.

Anyika’s book, My Hidden Race, offers a stark – and disturbing – glimpse into the fight that black, female athletes still face in their everyday life and career and, in the era of Black Lives Matter and Me Too, asks serious questions of British society and sport.

It is the powerful tale of how one woman fought against the odds to keep running, keep winning and keep surviving.
