Kelly Holmes: Power of Belief

Read more
The placebo effect and Roger Bannister’s 4 minute mile are just two examples of the amazing power of belief.

In this episode of DTMTS, Simon Mundie talks to Colonel Dame Kelly Holmes about self-belief, and asks whether it is the single most important factor in success. Kelly was 14 when she decided she was going to be an Olympic champion, and that belief never wavered. She eventually won double gold in Athens 20 years later. So what did she learn about the power of belief during that epic journey to Olympic success?

She now helps disadvantaged young people get more belief in themselves too- and shares with Simon how she helps boost their belief- to achieve big things in their own lives. And the Colonel also has some useful thoughts on harnessing the power of belief you could put into practice in your life too.

Kelly Holmes

Sue Lawley's castaway is the athlete Dame Kelly Holmes. Kelly Holmes was the heroine of the Athens Olympics. She achieved her lifetime's ambition when, at the age of 34, she won gold medals in the 800 and 1500 metres.

As a teenager she witnessed Sebastian Coe's Olympic success in 1984 and that was the inspiration behind her own career in athletics. Early on her trainers recognised she had the natural talent - and determination - to succeed. But her career has been blighted by injury - she bowed out of the 1996 Olympics due to injury; won a bronze medal at the 2000 Sydney Olympics despite considerable physical pain; and several times had appeared close to the end of her career as a result of a series of health problems.

Now retired from athletics, she says she wants to inspire other schoolchildren to take up sport - and make sure that the whole of Britain feels the Olympic spirit by the time it comes to host the games in 2012.
