My Olympic Story

Rebecca Adlington

The Olympics are the top thing that any athlete can achieve - every single person who is there is at the top of their game. You see David Beckham and Andy Murray walking around the village and it's incredible. No matter if you have a World or a Commonwealth medal, until you have that Olympic medal people don't say that's seriously impressive. Everyone recognises it, whether you're in sport or not. I felt very privileged to put on a team GB uniform, I felt like I had been given a responsibility - like I have to wear this with pride and it was a very big deal for me.

Bring on the Great: Show Your Support for Team GB Ahead of Rio 2016 Olympics

We can let our athletes know we're supporting them from afar. I do think that in Rio we can all do a little something to give our athletes that extra couple of percent that could make the difference to winning a medal and just missing out. That's what Team GB's Bring on the Great campaign is all about and I think the athletes today are so lucky to be able to benefit from things like social media and get that feeling support when away from home.

It's not a very long swim; it's not too dangerous either. In fact if you're looking for bragging rights, then the two-and-a-half mile Hellespont is probably not for you. But what the Hellespont has is history. It drips with history. It is - without any question - the world's most iconic swim.

I have always maintained for some of our swimmers being the best in Britain is the be all and end all - but this does not apply anymore. This year, this is changing... After the Commonwealth Games and now the Europeans, we have several events where we have five people in the top 20 in the world. Now that's real depth.

If Olympians Like Rebecca Adlington Aren't Safe From Body Image Bullies, Who Is?

Poorna Bell | Posted 29.09.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Poorna Bell

There is no hierarchy when it comes to abuse around a woman's body image - whether you're a celebrity or the average woman on the street. But I find it utterly shocking that these Olympians are viewed as fair game for online abusers. Worse, that the abuse has affected a gold-medal athlete so badly, she may have altered how she looks to fit an image of what other people think she should look like.
