Glamorous... Going for gold

Led by the girl whom most experts consider the best freestyle swimmer in the world, a golden generation of young British women will seek for gold on the London Aquatics Center on Sunday.

Rebecca Adlington is the master technician and defending double Olympic champion, an athlete, who possesses the ‘perfect’ freestyle stroke.  Adlington stood alone for Great Britain in the pool in Beijing, is one of a Magnificent Seven of British team this time and what promises to be a stunning first week of the Games.


Over 400m, Adlington’s encounter with the glamorous Federica Pellegrini will prove fascinating. In the water cube in Beijing, Pellegrini took gold in the 200m with Adlington winning over 400m and 800m, setting a new world record in the longer event. Since then, however, Pellegrini has become a master of the 400m, beating Adlington to the world titles in 2009 and 2011 and setting a new world record of her own. Conquering the Italian amounts to some challenge for Adlington.

The big threat in the longer event comes from Katie Ledecky, the ridiculously talented 15-year-old American who is ranked second in the world to Adlington this year. In Adlington, and indeed in Furniss, there is a quiet confidence, however. Here I like sharing few photos on the athlete i found on Internet.
