Here’s what Heidi had to say about her Rio Campaign!
“Today I came 21st in the 10km marathon swim! It wasn’t quite the result I was hoping for but I don’t think I under performed either. I think the quality of the field has continued to improve year to year and to be competitive in this world class Olympic field is something I am proud of.
While I finished 21st, I never gave up & fought till the end with a pack which went to a photo finish.
To represent my country at my second Olympic Games is the biggest achievement & greatest honour for me. It was never an easy journey and it’s been a somewhat bumpy ride, even here in Rio, but I tried my best and I wouldn’t change a thing – I hope I did Malaysia proud!
I want to really thank everybody for their support. All the messages I have received have been overwhelming and I really appreciate it. Special thanks to my coaches Matt and Ian for all their hard work. I’ll be hanging around Rio for another few days so watch this space for more photos from Rio 2016!”
