A look ahead to London 2012 with a selection of Olympic stories from across BBC local, national and World Service Radio.
In this edition, we hear from Judo star Kate Walker and her German coach Juergen Klinger as they train at the GB judo training camp at the University of Bath and Steve Cram gives us his view on the chances of Team GB’s athletes getting onto the podium at London 2012. We hear how British swimmers push their bodies to the limit in the hunt for Olympic glory and there’s an excerpt from Clare Balding’s Radio 4 series ‘Sport and the British’ which looked at how women’s sport in Britain came of age with the Golden Girls of the 1960s. Plus an interview with charismatic triple-jumper, Phillips Idowu, who is dreaming of Gold Medals in London 2012 and in Rio 2016.
