Sayers recalls costly javelin throw

British javelin record-holder Goldie Sayers tells BBC Look East that she kicks herself for the extra throw she took at a Diamond League meeting that injured her elbow weeks before last year's Olympic Games.

She competed at London 2012 but failed to qualify for the final and subsequently needed surgery during a year out on the sidelines.

The 31-year-old from Cambridgeshire, who had tendon reconstruction, had to launch against the decision to not give her lottery funding.
