Hi I'm Natalie and welcome to Talking Sport.
Today we are hearing about British swimmer Achieng Ajulu-Bushell
and learning the words drive and discipline.
Achieng Ajulu-Bushell is hoping to swim for Great Britain in the
London Olympics.
Achieng lives and trains in the UK but the rest of her family live in
Kenya.
Let's hear from reporter, Daniela Ralph, who has been with Achieng
on a trip to visit her family in Kenya.
Listen for the words drive and discipline.

For Achieng, Kenya is now an escape from the rigours of London -
it's where her mum, her step-dad and her sisters live. Here she's
free from the pressure of chasing her Olympic dream.
Achieng's life both here in Kenya and back in London is now a
complicated juggling act. Her Olympic ambition requires drive,
determination and discipline.
