Tay­lor picks up yet an­other award

Bray People - - NEWS -

KATIE TAY­LOR was named the Ir­ish In­de­pen­dent Sports Star of the Year last week­end in Dublin.

Katie was pre­sented with her award at a gala lunch on Satur­day in The West­bury Ho­tel.

Ir­ish In­de­pen­dent ed­i­tor Stephen Rae pre­sented Tay­lor with her award.

She said she was very proud to have re­ceived the ac­co­lade, adding that learn­ing to cope with huge pub­lic in­ter­est had re­quired some ad­just­ment.

'It's a priv­i­lege,' she said. 'I com­plain about it, hav­ing to here and there, but it's such an hon­our to be in­vited to events like this at the end of the day.'

She ad­mit­ted to some in­dul­gence dur­ing her time off over Christ­mas. 'I ate all around me… and it was bril­liant,' she said. 'Now I'm just busy get­ting ready for the fight and it's great to get back into train­ing prop­erly again.'

Katie will face an op­po­nent at the Bord Gais En­ergy The­atre on Fe­bru­ary 24 in her first fight since the Olympics. She is also ex­pected to de­fend her Euro­pean ti­tle on home soil in Oc­to­ber.
