Hi I'm Natalie and welcome to Talking Sport.

Today we are hearing about a fencer from Ukraine and learning the word 'glory'.

Olga Kharlan from Ukraine is one of the world's best fencers.

She won a team gold medal in the last Olympics inBeijing.

This week BBC reporter Nicola Pearson has been to meet Olga, who has been able to build her own house from her winnings.

Listen for the word 'glory' and see if you can hear what Olga is leaving behind.

Vídeo-clipe

Olga Kharlan, already a national hero and now Ukraine's brightest hope for Olympic glory inLondon. Inside her parent's one bed apartment, where Olga still lives some of the time, she showed me the souvenirs and trophies of her success. Olga's silverware isn’t just for show. Her success also means she can leave her family's small flat behind, using her winnings to build this. It's big! Yeah. And all because of fencing? Yeah.
