Get behind 'plastic Brits' - Radcliffe
- From the section Olympics
Long-distance runner Paula Radcliffe believes Britain should "get behind" their Olympic athletes, even if they were born abroad.
Selectors have been criticised for choosing athletes who have switched nationalities in order to represent Britain at this summer's Olympics, such as Cuban-born triple jumper Yamile Aldama.
But Radcliffe says they all feel an affinity towards Great Britain and as such the fans should support them all the way.
The marathon world record holder adds that it is "really important" to her to try and win gold for Britain this summer, despite her struggle for fitness.
