Keri-Anne Payne boosted by Olympic qualification of fiance

Open water medal hopeful Keri-Anne Payne says the Olympic qualification of her fiance, two-time Commonwealth champion David Carry, is a "relief" and "boost for the household" as she prepares for London 2012.

Carry booked a spot at his third Olympic Games with 400m Freestyle gold at the ASA National Championships in Sheffield, and Payne admits she is "getting very excited" with the Games just a month away.

The double world champion is seeking to go one better than her 2008 Beijing silver in the 10km open water swim at the London Olympics.
