The women’s 4x100m T35-38 Relay quartet of Olivia Breen (from Liphook, Hampshire), Bethy Woodward (Ferndown, Dorset), Katrina Hart (Bath) and Jenny McLoughlin (Chepstow) rounded off a fantastic night last night by taking bronze behind Russia and China.
There was some tense moments after the race when the decision of bronze hung in the balance, following a difficult hand off between Woodward and McLoughlin, but fortunately the pass was made within the box and the bronze was warded to the GB team.
Woodward said: “We worked perfectly together as a team, we were really, really united and one after the other was just incredible. The crowd just brought us through I think.
“Olivia got off to an amazing start which got me in a good place, then I got Kat in a good place, and we got the bronze so that’s just incredible.”
Hart added: “I love that bend. I just absolutely went for it and I heard the crowd just roaring and it was incredible, amazing. It was touch and go on the last leg but we held them off so it’s great.”
McLoughlin said: “I wasn’t sure if we’d managed to get it, but when it came on the board that we’d got third I was over the moon. I just had to go for the line and we got the bronze so that’s fantastic.”
The GB quartet clocked a time of 56.08 to take bronze.
