Short film on the sprinter’s progress from London 2012 cauldron lighter to Rio-bound GB team-member as she returns to the Olympic Stadium ahead of the Anniversary Games

Four years ago Desiree Henry was preparing for London 2012 cauldron lighter duties. Now she’s getting ready to make her Olympic debut in Rio.

First up is the Müller Anniversary Games on July 22-23, a special moment which will see the 20-year-old return to London’s former Olympic Stadium.

The sprinter suffered cramp during the 100m final at the recent European Championships but has announced she is fit to compete on Friday (July 22) when she will race the likes of Jamaica’s Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and GB team-mate Dina Asher-Smith, who won European 200m gold in Amsterdam.

In this short film, Henry shares her inspiring story over the past four years.
