    Marathon world record holder Paula Radcliffe was on Monday selected on Britain's athletics team for the Beijing Olympics.

    Radcliffe was picked despite having her training interrupted by treatment for a hip injury. The 34-year-old runner failed to finish the marathon in Athens four years ago despite being one of the favourites.

    Beijing will be her fourth Olympics after competing in track events in Atlanta and Sydney. She will only compete in the marathon in Beijing in August.

    Radcliffe also had her training schedule interrupted by a toe injury in September 2007 when she finished second in a half marathon – her first race for 20 months after having her first child.
