Athletics: SPORT SHORTS - Radcliffe in a race against time.

BRITAIN'S Olympic selectors are to give Paula Radcliffe every chance of proving her fitness for the Beijing Games after she admitted she was in "a race against time".

The marathon world record holder yesterday flew back to her French base at Font Romeu in the Pyrenees after attending the British Olympic Medical Institute in London, where she had a check to monitor her recovery from a stress fracture of the femur.

Radcliffe, 34, said: "I'm going back to continue my training - but yes, it is going to be a race against time."

The world record holder is already selected and UK Athletics performance director Dave Collins is pleased with progress: "She's still training very hard and working in a very professional fashion towards aiming to compete."
