The maths teacher who’s now aiming for the Olympic pentathlon.

18 months ago, Maths teacher Natasha Hunt was really unfit and decided the time had come to do something about it. When she went to her local gym she met a sports coach - Rob Parsons- a man on a mission to find an 'ordinary' member of the public to train for the London Olympics. Despite having never taken part in any competitive sport before, Natasha leapt at the chance. She and Rob join Jane to talk about how they decided on not one sport, but five, as Natasha is now in training for the modern pentathlon.
