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

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,” she said. “I’m definitely glad I got a medal in front of the home crowd.”
