Ratcliffe is the founder, chairman and majority shareholder of Ineos, a company that deals in fuels and a range of chemicals. And if Kipchoge was daring by testing the limits of marathon running, Ratcliffe is the embodiment of daredevilry — in his exploits in the business world, and in his adventures across the globe.
