Rebecca: I fear sea monsters!
OLYMPIC swim champion Rebecca Adlington has NEVER been for a dip in the sea… because she’s TERRIFIED of monsters of the deep!
The 24-year-old ( who won two golds at the London Olympics for the 400m and 800m races, admitted being scared of open water and of being attacked by creatures.
The champ, who retired in February this year after becoming the first Brit to win double Olympic golds since 1908, said that she would only ever swim out to sea if she was invisible.
After being asked what she would do if she was invisible for a day, she said: “I’d go for a swim way out in the sea, which I’ve never done before because I’m terrified of what’s underneath me.”
