"It's not sunk in yet!" what it means to be an Olympian - Alice Dearing, Team GB Marathon Swimming
Alice Dearing is a marathon swimmer and is part of Team GB for Tokyo. I'm thrilled to see Alice on the team as she's been kind enough to share her journey across the last six months on Destination Tokyo. You can hear her on Episodes 3, 25, 51 and 82.
But last weekend she finally qualified for Tokyo - making history as Team GB's first black swimmer heading to the Olympics.
It's great to hear Alice so thrilled to become an Olympian and to carry the 'responsibility' of being the first black woman to represent Team GB at swimming with such grace and composure.
Alice talks about those who've helped her over the last 16 years, the moment she qualified and which gaming consoles will be in her suitcases.
Thanks for listening! And all the best to Alice!
