Making a Splash with Rebecca Adlington

Two pupils, Kirsten and Iona, met former Olympic swimming champion, Rebecca Adlington. Both girls spoke to Rebecca (Becky) on the poolside and in the café after their races.

Both girls swam in the same three races: 25m front crawl (freestyle), 25m backstroke and 25m breaststroke. Kirsten won the front crawl and backstroke races, and finished second in the breaststroke race. Iona finished third in all her three races.

Rebecca was an Olympic freestyle swimmer who won  two gold medals at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, in the 400m and 800m events. In the 2012 London Olympics, she won two bronze medals.

All in all, it was a fantastic experience for both these young swimmers and their proud parents.
