Daley Thompson – Olympic Athlete, £2.3 Million Net Worth
Do we even need to introduce Daley Thompson at this point? After all, Robert Chalmers called him “the greatest all-round athlete this country [United Kingdom] has ever produced!” The former decathlete won the gold medal at both the 1980 and 1984 Olympic Games, breaking the world record in the process. Thompson also earned multiple awards at the Commonwealth Games, World, and European Championships.
While he wanted to continue, a hamstring injury forced Thompson to retire in 1992. Since then, he’s become a keen businessman, opening his own gym, Daley Fitness, and food company DT10 Sports, alongside Masterchef Gary Barnshaw. His former winnings and businesses bring his net worth to £2.3 million.
