Kelly Holmes

When Kelly brought home double gold in the 2004 Olympics she became a national hero. She has dedicated a lifetime to honour and endurance, while at the same time remaining heartily loyal to her family. She has had to contend with a host of injuries that affected her athletic form, but never affected her hopes. She did Britain proud - twice. Now it is time to be honest about her life- what emotions boil behind the strong facade? When were the times she fought back the tears? What are those real experiences that make her so accessible to the public? For the first time, Kelly opens up about her courageous life, growing up as a mixed-race child, a woman in the Army and her controversial move to the track. And now the years of pain and pressure are behind her, and her lifelong dreams are reality, what is next for Kelly Holmes?
