Becky Adlington On Beauty & Swimming

Olympic Medalist and recent Jungle survivor Rebecca Adlington spoke to Red Carpet News at a London gallery launch for an exhibition celebrating Kate Moss’s 40th Birthday. The now retired British Swimming star spoke about how she feels the Team GB swimming set up has improved since her outspoken criticisms in the wake of a generally disappointing London 2012 Olympics in the pool.

Rebecca talks about her own experiences of the home Olympic games and tells us about her Rebecca Adlington Swim Stars initiative to encourage young people to get swimming. The four time Olympic medalist also spoke about her recent time on reality show I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here. Rebecca attracted much attention in particular for her emotional admission of the public pressure she felt to be ‘beautiful’ and being left self conscious by trolls and media scrutiny. Rebecca tells us why she hopes that might change in the future.
