Liz McColgan , world 10,000m champion, sets out on a 30-odd minute journey tonight, hoping to add Olympic gold to her magnificent win in Tokyo. The 10,000m was only introduced as an Olympic women's event in 1988 - for years, international athletics authorities believed women's bodies were "not designed" for the rigours of long-distance running! Proving them wrong in Seoul, McColgan had to settle for silver behind
Olga Bondarenko. Can she go one better tonight?
