The Commonwealth Games 200 metres champion has been hampered by the niggling injury all year. Her last race was in Paris on 5 July but she didn’t complete it. Previously, she won the inaugural women’s 200m Cayman Invitational in May in her first run of the year.
“I’m excited about being in London but wish the circumstances were different because I’m not 100 per cent,” Mothersill, 34, said.

“But I’m a competitor and I’ll just go out there and see what happens. I’m notconceding anything because I’m here to complete a job and I’m a fighter. I’ve come to give it my all but the injury never went away and you end up doubting yourself a little. But this is my fifthOlympics, starting off with Atlanta in 1996 when I was 18 and I’m looking forward to completing the journey.”

Mothersill remains upbeat that she can compete through the pain. “At least I have just over a week to go before I run so that gives me a little more time.”
