Hopes to be third time lucky for Leisel Jones

Leisel Jones from Australia is competing in her third Olympic Games in Beijing. At the Sydney 2000 Olympics she was just 14 years old when she won a silver medal in the breaststroke.

At Athens in 2004 she won a bronze medal in the 100 and silver in the 200, despite holding the world record in the 100 meters.

She has been through family troubles and is now engaged to be married, but now is more mature to be able to put cast aside her emotions and concentrate on her swimming.
