“And to do it with Matty Lee was all the more special!  

“I wish my family was there to see it, but knowing my husband and son got to see us win Olympic Gold [on television] is NEXT LEVEL! 

“Massive thank you to everyone who made this possible! You have all played such a huge role in making this happen!”
