Becky loses her Olympic record - and is thrilled!

Becky has sent her congratulations to Katherine Grainger who has become Britain’s most decorated female Olympian - a record she shared with Becky with both holding 4 medals.


Katherine made it 5 when she took Silver with Vicky Thornley in the women’s Double Sculls event.  Almost immediately, Becky sent SwimStars a voicemail from Rio saying “It’s fantastic. I am so, so pleased for her, making the decision to come back after retiring after London 2012. She hadn’t been at her best coming into these Games, so I think she will be over the moon with silver, and to get a 5th Olympic medal is incredible.”


Kath immediately retired after the event. She had done the same after London. However, she told reporters that this time there is no chance of 2020 - she is really looking forward to a lie in!
