Future uncertain for Adlington
Great Britain swimmer Rebecca Adlington has admitted she will be considering her future in the sport following the London Olympics.
The 23-year-old has walked away form the Games in London with two bronze medals, to add to the two golds she picked up in Beijing four years ago.
Adlington battled hard to earn her bronze in the 400m freestyle but she will have been disappointed with the result in her favoured 800m freestyle, where she also finished third on Friday.
The Mansfield swimmer admitted the pressure of the occasion may have affected her performance and now she has revealed she does not know whether she will be competing at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
She said: "I'm going to do a charity bike ride in October in Africa.
"I'm not going to think about the pool.
"Once I come back I'll see what shape I am in, how I feel and whether I want to carry on or not."
