SWIM-GBR-ADLINGTON

Double Olympic champion Rebecca Adlington holds a press conference in central London on February 5, 2013, where she announced her retirement from competitive swimming. The 23-year-old Briton who won two gold medals at the Beijing Games in 2008 but could only muster two bronze medals at London 2012, said now was the right time to quit as she could no longer keep pace with a younger generation of swimmers.
