British Olympic Association Chair Lord Sebastian Coe:

“Becky Adlington's unforgettable success in Beijing inspired a generation to get in the pool and swim.  Her down to earth personality and remarkable career achievements have made her a national treasure. Becky's vision for the future of grass roots swimming in this country will create a wonderful legacy from one of our greatest Olympians.  I have no doubt this vision will be pursued with the same drive, dedication and determination as Becky consistently displayed in the pool.”

British Olympic Association Chief Executive Andy Hunt:

“Through her remarkable talent and tireless work ethic, Becky Adlington has set a standard of excellence that future generations of Team GB athletes will aspire to reach.  She represents the very best of what British sport, and the Olympic Movement, are all about.  As Becky transitions now into a new phase of her career, we wish her the very best for continued success, and congratulate her on her remarkable career with Team GB.”
