The Olympic medallist Tasha Danvers, who trained at Bath University and lives in Box in Wiltshire, has revealed she attempted suicide under the pressure of injury and trying to prepare for the Olympics.
She won a bronze in the 400 metre hurdles in 2008 in Beijing and was hoping to achieve similar glory this year in London, but an Achilles problem brought a premature end to her career.
Tonight she spoke to Ian Axton and Cordelia Lynch about her struggle.
