Rachel Stringer

TV Presenter

Rachel Stringer is one of the most exciting presenters to emerge in recent years. She currently presents Nick Kicks – the Football League highlights programme for Nickelodeon and Sky Sports. She has also hosted two series of Airmageddon, a CBBC show from the creators of Robot Wars. In 2015 & 2016 she was the host of Live@Wimbledon, the official online channel of the Wimbledon tennis championships.

She was also one of the hosts of ITV's brand new show World of Sport: Wrestling, which aired over the Christmas 2016 period with a 2-hour special.

In addition she is now presenting for Football Focus on BBC1; this follows making her debut on Match of the Day for the BBC in 2015. In the same year she hosted MOTD Kickabout for CBBC and Kickabout+ an all-sports show including features on Skateboarding, NFL, Cricket etc.

Rachel was previously a presenter for BT Sport. She was part of the team on Matchday Live with Fletch and Sav, interviewing Premier League footballers and managers with her fun and engaging personality, has presented features for the show and was a live reporter from grounds all around the country.

She was a regular on BTSPBT Sport's digital platform aimed at a younger audience and was also featured across SportsHub, WSL (Women's Super League football), Conference Football, NBA and Deadline Day transfers. She also co-hosted the World Freestyle Football Championships live from the O2 Arena and was the host of BT Sport's Action Woman show.

Rachel made the transition to presenting following an outstanding junior athletics career, which culminated in a silver medal in the 800m at the Commonwealth Youth Games in India. Sadly, injury curtailed her time on the track and took away her dream of competing at the London Olympics in 2012. It was that injury which forced Rachel to focus on working in front of the camera and she presented in the Olympic Stadium as a reporter for Samsung. This led to further behind the scenes work before her career started to take off at BT.

She hasn't totally turned her back on running though; she has completed several half-marathons and ran the London Marathon in 2015 & 2016 clocking an impressive time of 3:00:15, which puts her straight in to the race this year in the competition category – one rung below the elite runners! Rachel is an ASICS FrontRunner Ambassador and also a contributor to Women's Running magazine; she was featured on the cover of the December 2016 issue.
