Dreams Do Come True tells the inspirational story of one of Britain's golden girls from London 2012. Great Britain's finest woman rower had one final career target to achieve and, on 3 August 2012, on the water at Eton Dorney, she - and Anna Watkins - beat three other pairs to win the gold in the Women's Double Sculls at the London Olympics. After winning silver in 2000, 2004 and 2008, Katherine Grainger could finally call herself an Olympic champion.
Katherine's story is a remarkable one - proof that nice people can be winners, and that dedication and hard work pay off. As well as her achievements in athletics, Katherine has degrees from Glasgow and Edinburgh Universities and a PhD from London, in subjects as diverse as law, philosophy and murder. She has packed an awful lot into her 37 years, and in this autobiography she tells her life story: the highs and lows, and her ultimate moment of glory in front of thousands of home fans.

This is a book for anyone who has dreamed of triumph through determined ambition, who does not take themselves too seriously and understands the inner workings of other minds that makes for the great team spirit. It is also for those of us who have the willingness for such people to succeed. Miss this book and you will miss a little piece of yourself.
