Likeable and hugely talented, Dalton set nine successive national records between 1988 and 1991, becoming the first Briton to be ranked in the world's top 10 since Alan Paterson in 1950. Having narrowly missed a medal at the Seoul Olympics, he earned his greatest success a decade later taking the Commonwealth title in Kuala Lumpur and earning a European outdoor silver medal to add to the European indoor golds he had won in 1994. 

Given his experience as an elite athlete and his personal journey, he is an enthralling person to hear speak, and now is even more in demand given his Hackney roots and its links with London 2012

Dalton Grant is a character that likes to inspire and share his knowledge with the next generation of sporting talent. Not only does he coach up and coming high jumpers, he also transfers his skills to work with athletes in other disciplines such as sprinters , footballers and badminton players.

Dalton was very good with our guests mingling pre and post event. Nothing was too much trouble for him. On stage he engaged the audience well, gave some wonderful insight into life in the Olympic village and all the training, strains and stresses that it takes to be an elite athlete. An all round good guy.’

‘It was great to have Dalton at our annual awards. He was delightful guest and he was star when up on stage when presenting an award.’
