Passing the torch: How Northern Ireland women cemented place in Olympic history 

In a new book published tomorrow, some of the most successful sportswomen in the UK and Ireland tell Lady Mary Peters about their motivation, the highs and lows of competing and the camaraderie. Passing the Torch, which has been edited by the Olympic Golden Girl and includes a foreword by HRH The Princess Royal, is a fascinating read and will raise funds for the Mary Peters Trust which supports young athletes. Here, we feature some of the revealing insights from its many contributors.
