Synopsis

Katherine Grainger was Great Britain's finest woman rower, but there was one gigantic itch that needed to be scratched. On 3 August 2012, on the water at Eton Dorney, she - and Anna Watkins - rubbed away and London 2012 Olympic Games women's Double Sculls gold medals were theirs. Three times an Olympic silver medallist, her career was complete and, at the age of 36, she could retire an Olympic champion, to go with her six World Championships and eight World Cup gold medals. Kath's story is an remarkable one - proof that nice people can be winners and dedication and hard work pays off. Incredibly bright, Grainger combined her athletic career with her education and she has degrees from Glasgow and Edinburgh Univeristies and a PhD from London, in subjects as diverse as law, philosophy and homicide. No wonder she is so much in demand as a much and motivational speaker. Katherine Grainger: The Autobiography tells the inspirational story of one of Britain's golden girls from London 2012.

Dr Katherine Grainger is Great Britain's finest female rower and the most decorated one, too, with four Olympic Games medals - one gold - and eight World Championship medals - six gold - and seven rowing World Cups. But Katherine is more than just a star on the water, she is highly intelligent, having earned an Honours law degree from Edinburgh University, a Master of Philosophy degree from the Glasgow University and, whilst training for the London 2012 Games, completed her PhD in Homicide at King's College, London. Katherine may yet continue her rowing career and try to win a second gold medal at the Rio 2016, her fifth Olympic Games. She lives in Maidenhead.
