Great Britain's Hannah Miley is hopeful that she will be third-time lucky at the Rio Olympics next year.

British swimmer Hannah Miley has revealed that her main target is to win an Olympic medal in Rio next year after two previous failed attempts.

The Scot finished sixth in the 400m individual medley in her first Games back in Beijing in 2008, and then fifth in London four years later.

"I've won a medal at every major championships there is for swimming, but the Olympics have eluded me," BBC Sport quotes Miley as saying. "That's the target. Whether I can get on the podium or not - that's the dream to chase."

Miley, who holds the European and Commonwealth titles, is currently preparing for the World Championship trials, which get underway in April.
