Kelly Holmes made history when she brought home double gold in the 2004
Olympics, becoming a national hero. She won Sports Personality of the Year,
was given a Damehood, fully backed London’s successful 2012 Olympic bid
and became a superstar on the red carpet as well as a much acclaimed and
consulted professional in the sporting world.
Now in her staggeringly honest updated autobiography she reveals the
times she fought back tears to battle against injury and win gold, plus the
emotional decision she made to retire from athletics.
Including details of her unsettled childhood, trials in the army and a
struggle with self harm, Kelly’s amazing determination carries through to
make this inspirational and powerful autobiography a tale of triumph over
adversity and a model for readers of all ages and backgrounds
