Alicia Coutts: I almost quit swimming


Read Brisbane Times

Australia’s most successful swimmer at the London Olympics, Alicia Coutts, almost quit the sport in the wake of the turbulent Games.

Coutts won five medals in London but says a harsh post-Olympic let-down almost ended her swim career.

“I honestly came back from London and I did go through a bit of a patch where I was like ‘I don’t know if I want to swim any more’,” she told reporters in Adelaide on Wednesday.
