Dreams Do Come True

Winning three Olympic silver medals – in Sydney, in Athens and in Beijing – is an immense achievement and for most people it would have been enough. For Katherine Grainger, however, there was still the pull of the elusive gold medal to spur her on to compete again in London 2012. Her triumph in the women’s double sculls with her partner Anna Watkins, ranked as one of the signature moments of the Games. This is the inspirational story of Britain’s greatest ever female rower, a story which shows that perseverance, determination and passion can triumph and that dreams, indeed, can come true.
