Journey to 2012
“The dream is to compete in the London Olympics and that’s what my life is geared towards over the new few years,” Kelly says.
Kelly’s impressive record sees her sitting at the top of the table tennis pile in Britain. Global competition is tough in her sport though and Kelly has spent time in China, practicing seven hours a day with the best players in the world.
She added: “I dream about getting a gold medal but any colour would be amazing. Just to be up there on the podium in my home country would mean so much.”
