Fran Halsall: ‘I may never get over the disappointment of London 2012’


Read The Guardian

The first anniversary of London 2012 is closing in on Halsall with almost suffocating intensity – and she needs a deep breath before revealing her scars. “I’m still dealing with it, and I will have to continue dealing with it, because it’s not going to go away, is it?” Halsall admits. “I’ll probably never get over the fact, or get it completely out of my head, that London was something I’d worked hard for over so many years. I didn’t get what I’d been hoping for and it’s taking a long time to come to terms with that.”
