Ronnie O’Sullivan is the world’s most popular Snooker Player, a 5 time World Champion, 5 times UK Champion and 5 times Masters Champion. He holds the record for the most century breaks, the most 147 breaks and the fastest 147 break… a mere 5 minutes 20 seconds.
So much has been reported about Ronnie’s play on the table but his story off the table is just as fascinating and now for the first time he is available for speaking engagements where your clients can hear his story.
Ronnie had a normal childhood, if you describe ‘normal’ as hanging out in the family soho sex shop at ten, seeing his dad go to jail for murder at 15 closely followed by a stretch for VAT fraud for his mother. Self-critical and demanding Ronnie has had treatment for alcohol, drug and sex addiction!
In 2012 he took a year off the sport and didn’t play for a year… then promptly came back and won the world championship!
Ronnie’s work with acclaimed sports guru Dr Steve Peters is well documented as is his love of food and running. His best time for 10k is 34 minutes, which is only 4 minutes slower than Commonwealth Champion Jo Pavey.
He has now been awarded an OBE in the 2016 New Years Honours for services to Snooker.
