Thanks to a spectacular final leg by Louise Watkin in the 4×100 metres medley Britain were able to take home a silver medal.

The British team consisting of Heather Frederiksen, Claire Cashmore, Steph Millward and Watkin were not doing well when Watkin took over.

However, Watkin pulled back from fourth place, overtaking both Russia and the US on the way to complete in four minutes 53.98 seconds and take home silver.

Australia took home the gold with Jacqueline Freney winning her eighth gold medal of the Games.

After the race Steph Millward said that they “really did want the gold so we’re all going to cry later.” She said that they thought the gold was within their reach and by missing out on it by just a split second was “a shame”. However, as she said, “second is nothing to be upset about really.”

Cashmore seemed more optimistic, she described it as “fantastic and said that she feels “privileged to be part of such a great team.”

She went on to say that they “did an amazing job and I don’t think we could have done any more.”

Watkin said that she just “wanted to bring it back for the team.”
