Radcliffe: I'm fit for marathon
09:30, August 05, 2008

LONDON: Britain's Paula Radcliffe said yesterday she hoped to race in the Beijing Olympics marathon despite suffering from a stress fracture to her left femur.

Radcliffe, the women's marathon world record holder who has never won an Olympic medal, said she was "taking it day by day".

"I'm feeling good. I am happy to be here and to have got this far and I'm looking forward to starting the marathon," she told the BBC in Beijing, where she arrived to join the British Olympic team earlier on Monday.

Radcliffe, 34, won the World Championships marathon in 2005, but failed to finish at the Athens Olympics four years ago when she was among the pre-race favorites.
