World Champs Day 1 – 400m Freestyle

By 27th July 2009 Official News No Comments

Rebecca produced an amazing performance in the final of the 400m Freestyle last night in Rome, in her first major international event since Beijing.

After a disappointing swim in the heats, which placed her in lane 8 for the final, Rebecca swam an excellently paced race to win a bronze medal in a best time of 4.00.79- over 2 seconds faster than the time she posted to win Olympic gold in Beijing last August.

Following are some of the press from the race.
