Up next: Made in London

Human to Hero next meets British runner Christine Ohuruogu.

A keen netballer at first, she didn't start her track career until her late teens -- but the Londoner didn't waste any time catching up.

Ohuruogu won 400-meters gold at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, and then overcame injury problems to claim silver in 2012 near where she grew up in Stratford.
