Jessica misses out on Olympic glory

28 July 2012

Youngster makes it to relay final

Diggle's Jessica Lloyd has tonight missed out in her quest for an Olympic medal.

The 17-year-old, whose father Garry is a Latics' season-ticket holder, helped Great Britain finish fifth in the 4 x 100m freestyle relay.

Jessica this morning swam the second leg as Great Britain finished fourth in their heat to claim a place in the final.

Tonight they swam almost 1.2sec quicker but were well behind the Australians who smashed the Olympic record for the event.

Jessica was a guest at Boundary Park towards the end of the season as the club wished her all the best for the Olympic Games and presented her with a signed shirt featuring 'Lloyd 2012.'
