Does Rio beckon for Island athlete?

An Island resident has recorded an Olympic qualification time and is hoping to be selected for Brazil 2016.

But it won't be for Team GB.

Jessica Draskau-Petersson qualifies for Denmark by birth, but also has British citizenship.

She's is optimistic she has done enough to be picked for the Danish team, following her performance in the Chicago Marathon at the weekend.

She recorded a time of two hours, thirty minutes, seven seconds - a new personal best and just eight seconds off the Danish national record.

Draskau-Petersson previously represented Denmark at London 2012, coming 40th in the marathon.
