The Olympics may well be over for another year but the moment of glory is definitely not over for Olympic champion and shoe obsessive Rebecca Adlington! The British swimmer, who took home two gold medals from Beijing, returned home to Mansfield this week only to be presented with a gold pair of Jimmy Choo heels! Ahh, a girl after my own heart! Sure, getting a gold medal is amazing but a pair of golden designer heels?! Does it get much better than that?
Her Mum told Hello magazine, "The two things Rebecca loves most in life are shoes and swimming. If they made designer flippers she'd be in heaven." The mayor of Mansfield promised the shoes to Rebecca if she returned with a gold medal so it's great to hear him sticking to his word. Maybe if I start practicing now I might be able to get myself a pair in 2012? Lets hope Jimmy is busy right now sketching his latest pair of heels, the Rebecca!
