'I leaned over the edge to let anyone see and touch the medal that Northern Ireland had brought away from the Olympics. It wasn't mine, it was ours.'

In September 1972, after years of hard work, sacrifice and dedication, Mary Peters won the gold medal for the pentathlon at the Munich Olympics. Her skill as an athlete could not be disputed, yet this was to mark only the beginning of her story.

A beloved figure in her adopted home of Northern Ireland, Mary has spent decades promoting and encouraging its young sportspeople. From establishing its first high standard synthetic athletic track, to founding the Mary Peters Sports Trust, she has been a stalwart ambassador for sport and for Northern Ireland itself, and has received several royal honours in recognition of her services to sport and the community.

With over 60 photographs set alongside lively commentary and insight into contemporary events, this is the definitive account of a truly remarkable woman: 'Our Mary'.

'A joyful trailblazer, Mary takes her place amongst those few special sporting stars who have achieved legendary status - both as an athlete and in her achievements since leaving the track.'


'I owe so much to Mary Peters. I was a beneficiary of one of her foundation's grants, and for that, and for her continued support, I will always be grateful.'


'Mary Peters is an inspiration. She has used her success to encourage and support so many people in reaching their potential, personally demonstrating how to overcome the disappointments and celebrate the achievements.'


'An unparalleled influence in sport in Northern Ireland ... and a role model and inspiration to so many people - including myself!'
