Bronze in London

By 30th July 2012Official News

Rebecca won an Olympic Bronze Medal in the 400m Freestyle last night and immediately declared her delight at winning a medal at a home Games.

“It is just unbelievable, not many people can say they have won a medal at a home Games. I had to be careful when I came out – of course you can hear the noise but I didn’t dare look up. The event and the emotion can take it out of you. I didn’t want to get overwhelmed by it.

“It does definitely set me up,” she said. “It is all very, very encouraging. I know the 800m is going to be a fight and I’m going to have to fight like hell to get a medal, exactly like I did today. Hopefully I can repeat that performance.”

Rebecca defends her 800m Freestyle Olympic crown on Friday night in what will be one of the most anticipated races of the entire Olympiad.
