Jo Jackson's Olympic sport is...walking. No, you didn't read that wrong.|
But don't be fooled into thinking this is an easy sport. She trains twice a day, six days a week.
The Middlesbrough athlete, who is coached by her mum Maureen, started race walking when introduced to it by an ex-competor.
She soon discovered that she had a real talent and in 2010 she came first at the Commonwealth Games in India.
She is also the first British woman to win a major race walk title. She really is making the ordinary extraordinary.
Ahead of the Olympics she's feeling the heat, but is still excited.
"I think there is a bit more pressure being on your home turf," she told us.
"But I do think being at home will have the advantage of having the home crowd, especially for my event as it is on The Mall in the heart of London."
