Great Britain’s Helen Jenkins tells the Guardian UK newspaper that she often pictures running through Hyde Park, which will be part of the 2012 Olympic triathlon course:

I quite often imagine Hyde Park when I’m running. It’s always in my mind if I’m struggling in a session – ‘come on, think of Hyde Park, get through this.’ It’s a great venue – the crowd makes it great – and it’ll be good this year to get out of the park and go down the streets we’re actually going to cycle on for the Olympics. Everyone talks about 2012 as though we’re already going, but I’ve got to meet the criteria and get selected first, and I’ve got to beat some other strong girls to do it.”
