Dame Kelly Holmes
This week Adrienne speaks to the legendary Col. Dame Kelly Holmes DBE. Setting and still holding the British records in the 800m and 1000m, Kelly is an Olympic, Commonwealth and European champion who has achieved seven Gold, eight Silver and four Bronze medals throughout her career. This includes her iconic double win in the 800m and 1500m at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, making her the first Briton in over 80 years to achieve this.
After her Olympic success, she won BBC Sports Personality of the Year, European Athlete of the Year and was honoured with a Damehood from the Queen. In 2008 she founded the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust, the charity that “helps guide disadvantaged young people, getting their lives back on track by using world class athletes to engage, empower and enable the attitudes they need to fulfil a positive life.”
