Johnson wins gold in fine form
Britain's Elizabeth stormed to victory on Friday in the 100m Breaststroke SB 6. Silver was won by Australian Sarah Bowen and bronze went to American Debbie Gruhen.
Liz Johnson turned silver into gold at the Paralympic Games in Beijing today when she won the 100m breaststroke (SB9) to go one better than she did in Athens four years ago.
Johnson’s victory followed earlier medals for Sam Hynd and Heather Frederiksen as ParalympicsGB swimmers added a further five medals to their tally.
The Welsh swimmer led for most of the race but had to battle hard on the second length to hold off a strong challenge from Australia’s Sarah Bowen in 1:41.87.
“I couldn’t see anybody,” said the 22-year-old Cardiff student. “I thought I saw splashes from the side but wasn’t sure and just told myself to keep going.
“It’s been difficult waiting. I’ve seen a lot of competition and was itching to get going. Then this morning came and I was quite nervous. It’s really weird. You get nerves but as soon as the whistle blows, that’s it, you’re in the zone.”
Charlottte Henshaw just missed a medal in fourth after lying second for much of the first 50m.
