Hi I'm Natalie and welcome to Talking Sport.

Today we are hearing about British swimmer Achieng Ajulu-Bushell and learning the words drive and discipline.

Achieng Ajulu-Bushell is hoping to swim for Great Britain in the London Olympics.

Achieng lives and trains in the UK but the rest of her family live in Kenya.

Let's hear from BBC reporter, Daniela Ralph who has been with Achieng on a trip to visit her family in Kenya.

Listen for the words drive and discipline.

Back home with her family and a reminder of why she loves it here.

Achieng's life both here in Kenya and back in London is now a complicated juggling act. Her Olympic ambition requires drive, determination and discipline.
