A Cumbrian teacher is in line to become the only female clerk during the 2012 London Olympics.

Jan Lishman teaches languages at St Joseph's Catholic School in Workington.

Her job as clerk of the course will include raking the sandpit, and making sure the hurdles are the right height and sprinters' starting blocks are in the right position.
