Speaking last August, Kellie Harrington described her achievement of reaching the Olympic final in Tokyo as the “stuff of dreams”. Harrington of course went on to land gold at the games.

“It’s fantastic. Olympic silver medallist. That’s the stuff that people dream about. Many tried to get there, many don’t have what it takes to succeed because they don’t have the willpower, the determination, the focus, the dedication”, she said at the time.

“I eat, sleep and breathe boxing. I’ve had heartbreak. I know what it is to fail and I know how hard it is to pick yourself back up after that”. 

“This is why I am who I am, and why I am here today – because I’m not afraid of failure. I know what it is. I’m Kellie Harrington. I’m myself and I make my own pathway”.
