Olympican Tamsyn Manou says she is focused on qualifying for London Games

THREE-TIME Olympian Tamsyn Manou begins her attempt to qualify for the 800m at the London Games at next Saturday's Adelaide Track Classic, after confirming at the weekend she will retire at the end of this.

The 33-year-old Manou, nee Lewis, who injured a calf muscle last November, returned to competition at the Hunter Track Classic at the weekend, winning the 400m in 53.14 seconds, ahead of Pirrenee Steinert.

She said she was happy with her time, although she was "not fast at the moment".

"I was injured in November and I am not used to being injured," she said. "I am nowhere near my best but I am getting back into it."

Manou, who married her long-time partner, cricketer Graham Manou last May, said this year would be her final year of competitive athletics.

After winning gold medals in three Commonwealth Games and finishing in the semifinals at the Sydney and Beijing Games in the 800m, Manou said this would be her final Olympic campaign.
"I will be 34 in London," she said. "I think I have travelled enough for athletics."

She is focusing on qualifying for the 800m in London as a scheduling clash will make it impossible to also compete in the 4x400m relay.

But Manou said she was now available to help the 4x400m relay team qualify for London following her defeat of Steinert. But she would be unlikely to be in the team during the Games.

The relay team has until July to qualify.
