No funding, no world ranking: Craig Fallon's Olympic judo challenge

Craig Fallon has 18 months to fight his way back into the British judo team for the London Olympics.

Fallon, 28, left the sport for two years after he came a disappointing seventh at Beijing 2008. He returned to judo in January, winning gold at the British trials in the 66kg category - heavier than the 60kg at which he fought in Beijing, and won a world title in 2005.

But two years out of the sport has left Fallon with no funding from the governing body and no world ranking. The hard work to get into the team for 2012 starts now, as BBC Sport's Ollie Williams reports from the British trials in Sheffield.
