  Woman of the Year 1: Kelly Holmes 13 December 2004

What does the future hold for the double gold medal winner?

This year has been a particularly special one for athlete Kelly Holmes. At the Athens Olympics she proved herself to be one of the greatest runners of all time when she managed to win both the 800 and 1500m at the same games: a feat that even top British athletes like Seb Coe and Steve Cram didn’t achieve. And to cap it all, she’s the first British woman to win two gold medals at the same games.   

Kelly talks about achieving her Olympic dream, the way it’s transformed her life and what the future holds.
