We might have more than 270 sportsmen and women travelling to Athens for the Olympics this month, but just how many medals will they bring back? One of the few real medal contenders is 21- year-old Nicole Cooke. She'll be competing in the cycling.
Last year she was the youngest ever winner of the Cycling World Cup. But three months ago there were fears she wouldn't make it to Athens as she underwent surgery on her knee. She's back in the saddle now and had a convincing win in Italy last month.
Maithreyi Nandakumar meets Nicole and her father, Tony, at their home in Glamorgan.
