Since Charlotte spoke to us back in July a combination of painful injuries proved to be a major hurdle as she tried to qualify for her second Olympics.

However, she persisted throughout and eventually ended up making it to South Korea.

This time around, with the experience of Sochi 2014 to turn to, the aim is to make an impact on the track and the 27-year-old tells us just how much effort goes into performing at your best.

From training, all the way down to checking messages from your loved ones and from people on social media, everything matters.
