Olympic Gold medallist, Rebecca Adlington has spoken about her hopes of becoming a TV presenter one day.
The swimmer, who has won two Olympic Gold medals, announced that she would one day like to become the next Sue Barker. She said “I’d love to be a bit Sue Barker-ish, how she is. I’d absolutely love to do that stuff.” Rebecca said that her dream would be to work at an Olympics and she would love to be involved in the commentary and presenting in Rio 2016.
The other TV presenter she admires is Clare Balding, who was considered to be the face of the London 2012 presenting team. Speaking about the popular sports presenter Rebecca said “You’ve got to be passionate and enjoy what you do and that’s what I really like about Clare...She’s just brilliant. Everyone really warmed to her during the Olympics.”
Rebecca gained lots of fans during the London 2012 games and has since appeared on TV programmes such as The One Show and Mock the Week. Since retiring after the London Games, Rebecca has also been tipped to star in reality TV series such as Strictly Come Dancing and Splash.
