Rosa Gallop has paid tribute to her family after being named the winner of the Alfred H Turner award.
After an incredible career in swimming, Rosa said that she couldn’t have done any of it without their support.
She said: “I’m really chuffed (to win the award) but I would like to say without my husband and my family, I couldn’t have done it. So, I think we all deserve the award, it’s an award for all of us.”
Rosa is certainly a worthy recipient of the award but after collecting the accolade at Swim England’s National Awards ceremony in Birmingham she was taken aback by the moment.
“I’m a bit overwhelmed actually. I’m so chuffed, I didn’t expect anything like that.”
