London 2012 Olympic hopeful Helen Davies hopes to join Paula Radcliffe in Team GB

In the marathon Paula Radcliffe from Bedford has already qualified for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

She's just got married, so you might not recognise the name, but in the Olympic spotlight this week, is Helen Davies.
