Rebecca Adlington is Great Britain’s most successful female swimmer. She became a household name following her two-gold medal winning performances at the Beijing Games in 2008 and her unique blend of charisma and charm allied to her dedication and professionalism in and out of the pool has made her a global superstar, and a role model for female athletes around the world.

Becky’s drive and thirst for success meant that she won a medal in each of the Olympic finals she swam. A four-time Olympic medallist in the 400m and 800m Freestyle, she won two Gold medals in Beijing 2008 and two Bronze medals in London 2012.

Rebecca Adlington announced her retirement from elite swimming in 2013 and has since undertaken numerous roles in swimming commentary and punditry. A mainstay for the BBC’s coverage of the 2015 World Championships, the 2016 Rio Olympics, the 2017 World Championships, and the 2018 European Championships, Becky is an articulate and respected media presence. Becky is also an ambassador for Encephalitis Society and works closely with several Women in Sport charities.

Following her retirement Rebecca announced a vision for her legacy: Becky’s Swim Stars – a swimming initiative with the goal that every child in Britain will be able to swim 25 metres by the time they leave primary school. Her famous drive is now channelled into this vision and Rebecca Adlington’s Swim Stars is the fastest growing high profile learn to swim company in the country.
