The film originally premiered at the Galway Film Fleadh earlier this year and it is now being released to the public.

This will be a rare opportunity to see what really goes on in the life of the notoriously private champion.

Taylor has won six amateur European championships, five world amateur championships and most famously, an Olympic Gold Medal at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Ross Whitaker directs the sports doc and said it was a ‘privilege’ to work with Katie.

“[Katie] might be shy and private, but she has that presence that draws the camera and the audience to her.”
