Virgin Books are proud to announce the publication of Olympic double winner Kelly Holmes' personal account of Athens 2004. 'My Olympic Ten Days' recounts in Kelly's own words her thoughts, hopes and fears as she progressed through the Games to achieve her phenomenal double Gold. The day-by-day account is fully illustrated with many photographs from Kelly's personal snapshots. Reflecting on the struggle of many women athletes before her, 'My Olympic Ten Days' covers the anticipation of the heats right through to her rituals before the race and the post-race jubilant atmosphere. How did she stay focused? How did she keep her body going under the punishing schedule? How did it feel to achieve her lifelong dream - twice? Placing this amazing feat in Olympic history, Kelly's story is a celebration of one woman's personal goal that she shared with the whole of the UK. Kelly Holmes comments: 'Writing this book enabled me to relive the unbelievable moments in Athens that changed my life forever. I hope this book will become a fitting memory for years to come for all the thousands of people who lived my dream at the Olympic Games 2004. I have enjoyed working with Virgin Books who have made it possible to pass on my memories to everybody.'
