Kelly Holmes: Black White & Gold (book)


For the first time, Kelly Holmes opens up about her experiences growing up as a mixed race child, being a woman in the Army and the extreme pressure behind the scenes of her athletic career. From near death on mountain tops and chronic fatigue syndrome, to winning double gold in the 2004 Olympics, Kelly tells us how her world has been turned upside down. Black, White and Gold reminds us that there are at least three sides to every hero, and this is the inspirational story of a woman who would give everything to realise her dreams. [1]
