GB Judo star Sally Conway aims to take London 2012 experience to Rio Olympics

Great Britain's Sally Conway claims that she will try to draw on her London 2012 experience at the Rio Olympics next year.

Great Britain's Sally Conway has expressed hope that she can build on her London 2012 Olympic experience when competing in Rio next year.

The Scottish judo star, who won bronze in the -70kg event at the Commonwealth Games last year, failed to medal in her previous Olympic outing.

"London for me was an amazing experience," Conway told BBC Scotland. "I went believing I could have medalled, but I felt I got too nervous.

"The pressure got too much for me because I'd never fought in a stadium like that before, especially when all the support was cheering for me. The whole experience was all so new to me, so I'll just take that into Rio and hopefully be able to perform better as a result."

Conway is currently competing for Britain at the World Championships in Astana, Kazakhstan.
