The Bedford & County athlete who won the junior race at the World Junior Cross Country Championships in 1992 is arguably not only UK's best-ever distance runner but the best the world has seen. With Commonwealth and European titles to her name along with World Cross Country victories, World Half Marathon, London and New York Marathons she has more medals than anyone else. However, her greatest performance was in the London Marathon in 2003 where she obliterated her own world record with 2:15:25 and to date no-one has got anywhere near it. That time is regarded by many as the greatest single performance by a man or woman in history. The last five years have been beset by injuries and starting a family, but who would bet against her in 2012?
