People tend to comment on how small I am. They say, 'Oh my God, aren't you tiny?'... the fact that I'm only 5ft 3in and quite petite just proves it doesn't matter what size or shape you are, you can do pretty much anything if you put your mind to it

A common misperception of me is ...

That I'm tall. I'm only 5ft 3in. I guess I must have filled the TV screen when I was running because I bounce up and down a lot and my strides are big.

Kelly is only 5’2. I was at a function with her a few months ago. She’s only diddy but absolutely gorgeous. Her skin is fantastic!

Huh? For a sprinter she's pretty small, it just shows that smaller women can be successful in sport, in fact, all my shorter than average friends seem to be the ones that are good at it, I'm pretty rubbish! 5'3" isn't tiny, so I have not idea why people say it is, it's only slightly below average, I know hundreds of women that hieght and below. I went to Bolivia and most of the women were 5'0" or below, I felt like a giant. Now that's tiny!

I thought Dame Kelly Holmes was taller than that maybe at least 5'5", but she is still best known for winning two gold medals.

I love Kelly Holmes, she has proved so much to england, and yes you are right it doesnt matter how tall, small, fat or thin you are, it's how much effort you put into something, shows how much you can achieve
