Christine Ohuruogu: Her Faith, Her Successes and Her Rivalry

In 2008 British runner Christine Ohuruogu won Olympic gold in the women's 400 metres in Beijing. Four years ago in 2012 she won silver when the Games came to London.

Christine was world champion in 2007 and 2013 and the Commonwealth champion in 2006. Last year she struggled with injury and although she reached World Championship final in Beijing she finished in last place. Passion for Sport reporter, Norman Brierley, caught up with Christine in June just before the Diamond League meeting in Birmingham. 

He asked about her disappointments last year, her rivalry with American 400 metre runner, Sanya Richards-Ross, her hopes for Rio and the difference that her faith as a follower of Jesus Christ makes to her athletics.  He began by asking how her training's going this year?
