'Faith is the most important thing in my life. I wouldn't be here and achieved all this if I didn't have God in my life.' ~Katie Taylor (Irish World Champion Boxer)
Katie Taylor has become a sports celebrity with three World championship gold medals and four European gold medals. This down to earth young woman has become an inspiration to many, particularly young people. On a recent visit to her former school she said: "The most important thing is to enjoy what you do and always try your best. If you give it everything you have, you can't have any regrets after that." She is also a deeply spiritual young woman and has publicly acknowledged the difference her faith has made in her life. Her story has been a sparkling success but she also has had moments where she lost and struggled. But every time she has prayed, dug deep, found inner strength and persevered to where she is today. With her sights firmly on the London Olympics in 2012, there is much to look forward to. Her words can be an inspiration to us too: "Be the best that you can be."
