English swimmer and Olympic medal winner Rebecca Adlington retired from professional swimming early this year. As it turns, out, her plans for retirement just might include plastic surgery.
24-year old Olympic athlete Rebecca Adlington has faced a lot of criticism for her looks over the years. So much, in fact, that the former pro swimmer is considering plastic surgery.
Despite having a fantastic figure due to her athletic prowess, which have earned her two gold medals and two bronze medals, it seems that Adlington faces a lot of insecurity about her appearance. In fact, the former swimmer actually concerned swimmers when she became upset after comparing her looks to those of model Amy Willerton, her campmate on cheap Proscar I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! buy Phenergan online buy Premarin Plavix buy Zithromax online cheap Propranolol
In an interview with The Times, Adlington admitted to not being happy with her own appearance and how hard she finds it to brush off the comments of online critics.
Adlington said: “Every day I look in the mirror and go, ‘God, I’m not pretty’.
“I’ve got a very big nose. That’s what most of the negative comments on Twitter are about – my nose. People say, ‘Oh God you look like a dolphin’, or ‘I didn’t realize they let whales into the Olympics, but at least you should be able to swim faster with a nose like that’.”
“I’ve always known I’m not particularly attractive. I don’t have high cheekbones and I’ve got big fishy lips. I don’t have a womanly figure — people say I’m butch . . . manly.”
She goes on to say that her shoulders are “too big,” her boobs are “not big enough” and her hips “are getting bigger.”
Addlington added that she feels that her shape and looks are “not particularly attractive”.
“I will always be insecure and I will always look in the mirror and wish I was a pretty girl,” Adlington said.
“I was never one of those girls that got any attention. It never really bothered me because it was my swimming that gave me confidence.”
Despite having a negative self image, Adlington did say that if she did have plastic surgery, such as nose job, she would be doing it for herself, not to please others or those who have made cruel comments in the past. For Adlington, she says that going under the knife would be an effort to be the best version of herself.
Adlington is set to marry fellow swimmer Harry Needs next year and says that her fiancé is loving and supportive, no matter.
In the meantime, before heading for a plastic surgeon’s office in the near future, Adlington is planning to inspire a new generation of swimmers.
In a statement on her website, via The Daily Mail, Adlington says: “I’m very proud of what I have achieved so far, but my journey is not finished yet.”
“My vision is that every child in Britain will be able to swim 25 meters by the time they leave primary school.”
“Being able to swim is such a wonderful life skill, and I see this as my greatest challenge in swimming.”none
