What does it take to go for gold and be the greatest?
In Going For Gold, Wales's leading athletes share the secrets of their drive and determination to be the best in their sport.
Cyclist Geraint Thomas, who won Olympic gold in the Team Pursuit in Beijing 2008, and Paralympic swimmer Dave Roberts, who has won 11 gold medals, talk of their ambitions to win in London 2012.
World champion hurdler David 'Dai' Greene explains his hunger to be the best and the importance of loving what you do. Commonwealth medal-winning swimmer Jazmin 'Jazz' Carlin and Paralympic world champion Nathan Stephens also reveal the discipline needed to go for gold.
This collection of stories will inspire others to aim for their goals and follow their dreams.
