TALENTED teenager Bobbie-Ann Morgan smiles for the camera alongside her boxing hero Nicky Cook just before his victory over Kirkor Kirkorov at the Excel Arena.

Cook has lent his support to Living the Dream, a charity set up to help local athletes like 15-year-old Morgan realise their dreams of representing Great Britain at the London 2012 Olympics.

The youngster has rowed competitively for the last 18 months for the Royal Docks Rowing Club at the London Regatta Centre on the Royal Albert Docks and she has also represented Barking & Dagenham at the London Youth Games, where she won her age group in the indoor rowing section.

Like many of budding young athletes, Bobbie, who is also an excellent swimmer, hopes to take part in the biggest sporting event in the world when it descends on the capital city in four years' time.
