Liz Yelling made her marathon debut in 2003, where finished eighth in the Berlin Marathon in 2:30:58, which ensured qualification for the 2004 Olympic Games, where Yelling finished 25th but since, the Bedford & County athlete has continued to improve in ability and confidence. The 33-year-old picked up a Commonwealth Games bronze medal in 2006 and one season later, Yelling broke the 70-minute barrier for the half-marathon in Bath and was eighth at the Flora London Marathon in a lifetime best of 2:30:44, but the hot weather was not conducive to a superior time. At the Chicago Marathon in October, Yelling was in very good shape but a heat-wave scuppered an attack on the sub-2:30 barrier but was a fine fourth.

Yelling is proving age is no handicap as she finally broke the 2:30 barrier in London, clocking 2:28:33 for ninth but a fall at the 15km point in the Olympic Marathon meant any chances of a high finish were ruined, as Yelling had to struggle on with bruised ribs as a result.

Liz will miss the 2009 season, because she and her husband Martin are expecting their first child this summer but could return for the London Marathon in 2010.
