When we originally talked about doing these posts every morning we were planning to feature a few former Olympians as well – mainly because I ruddy love Sally Gunnell.

However, we’ve been absolutely spoilt for choice because there are so many fantastic, successful and super cool women on Team GB for London 2012, we simply can’t fit them all in.

Up today is the fantastic Christine Ohuruogu, who came second to Sanya Richards-Ross when she raced on Saturday, despite being blighted with injury since her win in Beijing (she was the defending female 400m champion after getting gold in 2008).

But, in the face of her disappointment, Christine proved that she’s a) still got the sort of steely determination that marked her out as a total champion in the first place and b) is just as gracious in defeat as she was in victory four years ago.

Talking after the race, she said: ‘I was stunned, I was stunned

‘I was heartbroken actually, to have to lose my title like that.

‘It was tough, but Sanya is a worthy competitor and she ran a good race. It could have been worse.’
