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.
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.”
