Lincolnshire swimmer Melanie Marshall has revealed her delight at being added to a second relay event in the Beijing Olympic Games.

Marshall was originally only selected for the 200m freestyle relay but now she has been included in the 100m relay squad as well.

The 26-year-old has replaced Jess Sylvester who initially won a place.

Marshall told the BBC: "I am very excited - I think we have got as good a chance as anybody."

She added: "We have got a great team in the four by two and a great team in the four by one.

"The thing is we have got to get all four swimmers doing their best on the day."
