Fenn set a British record to win bronze
Great Britain's Jo Fenn won the bronze medal in the women's 800m at the World Indoor Athletics Championships in Budapest on Sunday.

The gold medal went to Maria Mutola of Mozambique with Jolanda Ceplak of Slovenia taking the silver.

Mutola, the Olympic champion, took the lead with 60 metres to go and finished in one minute 58.50 seconds, holding off Ceplak by 0.22 seconds.

Fenn set a British record of 1:59.50 as she claimed the bronze.

The gutsy athlete felt her bronze medal success proved her race tactics were right.

"I am absolutely overwhelmed," the Londoner said. "My coach has always had belief in me and the aim was to get a medal. I just needed that medal.

"I am over the moon and emotional," she added on BBC Radio Five Live.

"I decided beforehand that I should run an even-paced race. I wanted to run my own race. I'm pleased it has paid off."
