Quick Overview

Katie Taylor, beyond question Ireland’s most successful contemporary athlete, made history by winning Gold at London 2012. This is the remarkable story of her road to gold.

A marvellous picture book telling the Irish success story of Katie Taylor.

At the young age of 15, she participated in the first officially sanctioned women's bout ever held in this country, and then went on to become the first female boxer to win four successive world titles, followed by a total of five European Amateur Championships and four European Union Amateur titles.

Her journey culminated in London: her road to gold led her to the first Olympic gold medal awarded to a female boxer in the 60kg division. Author and journalist Jason O'Toole has given us a photographic tribute along with accompanying text, highlighting Katie's extraordinary ascent through the ranks of women's boxing all the way to the very top.
