Out of the pool Sally studies Industrial Design. Sally has recently completed a book documenting her experiences leading up to and at the London Olympic Games. The book was inspired by diaries written by Sally’s great aunt during her own experiences as a competitor at the Berlin Games in 1936. The book will be released in May 2014 and has been cleverly written and presented as two stories of elite athletes, their experiences, emotions and growth as a result of their sport.
