Williamson retains Paralympic dreams
- From the section Disability Sport
Swimmer Fran Williamson admits she is 'devastated' after her favoured S3 50m backstroke event was omitted from the London 2012 Paralympic programme.
But the Cambridge-based athlete, who has cerebral palsy and is world champion over the 50m backstroke, is refusing to give up on her dream of glory in London and instead will focus on the 50m and 100m freestyle.
The six-time Paralympic medallist tells BBC's Shaun Peel about her disappointment at the backstroke decision and her views on the future for athletes with more severe impairments in the Paralympics.
