Weightlifter Zoe Smith on 'rollercoaster' 18 months

From Commonwealth bronze to funding cuts, leaving home and breaking 15 British records at the World Championships in Disneyland Paris, it's certainly been a whirlwind 18 months for Zoe Smith.

The teenage weightlifter says she's now a "better athlete" after her experiences, which BBC Sport's Nick Hope has followed in the lead-up to the London Olympics.

Zoe Smith features in British Olympic Dreams alongside the likes of swimmer Keri-Anne Payne, rower Alan Campbell and gymnast Dan Keatings - Saturday, 11 February 1300GMT on BBC One.
