Liz Johnson is celebrating winning bronze in the SB6 100m breaststroke final at the Paralympic Games.

The University of Bath-based swimmer, who has cerebral palsy, finished third behind Ukraine’s Viktoriia Savtsova, who set a Paralympic record, and Britain’s Charlotte Henshaw who took silver.

I'm so relieved to get a bronze medal and to get a medal in the home games.

But the more I think about it, and the more I see the time that could have won it, maybe I'm a little disappointed that I didn't win."

The swimmer’s bronze means she now has a full set of medals, after winning silver in Athens eight years ago and gold in Beijing in 2008.

I’ve never had a bronze medal, so now I’ve got the full set at the Paralympics.

I’m definitely glad I got a medal in front of the home crowd.
