Woodbridge in no hurry for medals

Shropshire Olympic hopeful Nick Woodbridge is looking on this summer's games in Beijing as a dry run for a medal chase at London in 2012.

The modern pentathlete is close to securing a place in the Great Britain squad after finishing eighth in the latest round of the World Cup.

"Realistically I see 2008 as a games experience as I am still developing," he told BBC Radio Shropshire.

"I will get stronger, and the real aim is a medal in 2012."

Woodbridge's eighth-place finish out of 95 competitors at Millfield School was a good result.

"I was looking for a top 10 finish, and one more of those should guarantee me a place in the team for Beijing," he added.

The GB selections will be confirmed in early June.
