Enfield & Haringey runner gearing up for London 2012
London born Margaret Adeoye is relieved that injury did not ruin her chances of competing for Great Britain in the 200 metres.
The 27-year-old, who runs with Enfield & Haringey Athletic Club, booked her place at the Olympics when she ran 23.09 seconds in the Olympic trials on June 24.
“I can’t believe it,” she said. “I’ve had an up and down season, and I was injured for a month as well.
“I did the 100m to blow off the cobwebs, but I was still a bit nervous because I thought what if I don’t make the end of the 200m.
“The last time I tried to double up I hurt myself. I was really panicky about that, but then I got to the line and ran the heats and thought I can actually win this. I just got my confidence from that.”
