However, Payne will solely be competing in the open water in the capital and will have to wait until August 9, five days after the pool competition concludes, to negotiate the Serpentine in Hyde Park.
The 24 year old won the silver medal at the Beijing Games and since then has claimed world titles in 2009 and 2011, sandwiching an eighth place finish in 2010, the same year she won Commonwealth bronze in the 400 metres individual medley.
Payne admits "you have to have a certain amount of hard to you" as an open water swimmer, having come across dead dogs and jellyfish as well as flailing arms and legs from opponents.

"Hopefully the young ones will learn a bit from the likes of David (Carry) who is coming up to his third Olympics and Jo Jackson is the same and then myself and Becky (Adlington) at our second.
"Everybody is their own person and I would never, ever say to anybody how to go about their Olympic experience because it is different for everybody," said Payne.
