Radcliffe makes 2012 vow

Paula Radcliffe says she will be leaving no stone unturned as she bids to end her Olympic heartbreak by capturing gold at London 2012.

The world marathon record holder has had her fair share of Olympic heartache over the years, but all that would be forgotten if she could march to glory in London.

There is no better place for her to end her Olympic hoodoo than on home soil, so like all British athletes she will not be taking any chances in her preparations.

When asked on how she could achieve her Olympic dreams, Radcliffe said: “By leaving no stone unturned and doing all that I can to make sure that at the end of the year it was the best that I could be, and that there was no more I could have done or given.

“It is a once in a lifetime opportunity that will give all of us British athletes a huge boost and motivation.”

Injuries have been a major nemesis for Radcliffe over the years, and she just wants to be able to give everything to try and claim gold next summer.

“My ambition for 2012 is to stand on the start line fit and healthy and be able to give it 100% in the race.”

Radcliffe’s vow comes as part of the launch of a campaign by her sponsors Nike to ‘Make It Count’ in 2012, with fellow British Olympian Mo Farah also joining in and vowing to do his utmost to claim London gold.

The World and European 5,000m Champion, added: “For me, the next 12 months are about working harder to become better, faster and stronger. Whatever your goal, beat it and better it by making this year count”.
