Hi I'm Natalie and welcome to Talking Sport.
Today we are hearing about a swimmer from Australia and learning the word
'form'.
Emily Seebohm is one of Australia's top swimmers.
She won a team gold medal in the relay competition in the Beijing Olympics.
But last year Emily suffered many illnesses which stopped her training.
However, Emily is now much better and is hoping to compete in the London 2012
games.
Let's hear from her.
Listen for the word 'form' and listen for what medal Emily wants to get.

Walking her dogs with her brother at the local beach Emily seems relaxed, but
her determination means she is returning to form and her plan to add individual
Olympic medals to the relay gold from Beijing is now back on.
Emily: I want to go back there and be able to do something that I haven't done
yet which is get my own individual medal, you know, hopefully it is gold and
hopefully I'm singing my national anthem again.

The word form has many different meanings but in this context 'form' means
Emily's ability to perform well.
We heard that Emily is 'returning to form' meaning she is returning to her best
physical ability.
Did you hear what medal Emily wants to get?
Yes, an individual medal meaning a medal just for her.
"I want to go back there and… get my own individual medal"
Well, we have learnt the word form. Now let's hear from some people in London.
Listen to how they use the word 'form'.

The English team are in bad form. They haven't won a game in ages.
My favourite footballer is returning to top form after a bad injury.
I haven't been in my best form but I'm hoping to get fitter by going to the gym.
