👉🏽 @realkellyholmes1500 🥇🥇🥉 @tea@teamgb ・・・ I still get surprised by people’s reactions when I show them my Olympic medals (18 and 14 years on whaaat 😳🤷🏽‍♀️) Bronze at the Sydney Olympics in 2000. At the time because of my injury struggles it was like a Gold. Double Gold at the Athens Olympics in 2004. Was more than a dream come true. I always believed in my dream since age 14 and 20 years later it came true. I loved being part of @teamgb representing Great Britain and making loads of friends through a sport that was my life. DREAM BIG NEVER GIVE UP BELIEVING WINNERS NEVER QUIT QUITTERS NEVER WIN #dream #believe #runner #running #olympics #gold #medal #athletics #lifelessons #journey #workhard #commitment #dedication #fit #determination (picture taken during my trip to Kerry )
