LONDON, England, January 17. IN one of the most in-depth interviews ever done with Olympic gold medalist Rebecca Adlington, the Alan March Sport Show debuted with an in-home interview with Adlington that lasts more than 30 minutes.

Adlington runs the gamut of her emotions and thoughts on winning two golds at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, through to the growth of the sport as well as how she has handled celebrity in Great Britain after her impressive performances in 2008. Adlington also talks about the disappointment of her performances at the 2012 London Olympics.

Just about a year ago, Adlington decided to call it a career as she retired from the sport of swimming. She has since moved on to use her celebrity to help grow the sport in her home country, as well as enjoying some access to different projects such as the reality TV series “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here,” that is held in Australia. She finished sixth overall in the 13th edition of the event in November and December.

Alan March is a commentator in England that has commented on a plethora of sports events including the Olympic Games and the Champions League. He’s definitely a friend of swimming, and while his web-show will feature a full plate of all sorts of sporting events in Great Britain, there’s a high likelihood that most of his shows will include a focus on swimming.
