Adlington: “Phelps obviously never raced any teenagers”
Rebecca Adlington has reacted to Michael Phelps’ extraordinary Olympic record by pointing out he never had to go up against suspiciously fast teenagers.
Adlington clinched bronze in a final which was won comfortably by a 15-year-old from the US, despite the race starting well past her bedtime.
This followed a 16-year-old Chinese winning two golds earlier in the Games.
The British swimmer also explained to the disappointed British media, “Phelps didn’t have to worry about having you ****s on his back all the time either.”
