Team GB swimmer Rebecca Adlington has made it through to the 400 metre women's freestyle final.

Adlington got off to a good start and by the half way point was a body length ahead of the rest.

But she will have to swim faster in the final if she wants to take home a medal, eight competitors have clocked better times than her in the other heats.

The 25-year-old already has two gold medals in her collection from Beijing.
