Stevenson to 'go for it' in London

Taekwondo world champion Sarah Stevenson says losing her father to a brain tumour and her mother to cancer last year has given her a "go for it" attitude for London 2012.

Stevenson adds that winning gold in the 67kg category at the 2011 World Championships has slightly taken the pressure off her for the Games, but she still wants Olympic gold to complete her collection of medals.

The 2008 Olympic bronze medallist had cruciate ligament surgery in February after she was injured during a training camp in Mexico, but insists her rehabilitation period is nearly over.
