SOPHIE PASCOE CHALKS UP HER THIRD GOLD MEDAL 2012
Sophie Pascoe still has the SB9 100m breaststroke to compete in tomorrow morning, yet there was no stopping Pascoe in the pool yesterday from blitzing her own personal best, again.
The swimmer not only really wants that $1 billion dollar new swimming pool complex built in her hometown of Christchurch City, she gave the future new pool’s main sponsors (all of New Zealand), a right display on just why that sports complex is so worth it to stick up in Canterbury for Christchurch kids.
The advice of her coach Roly Crichton came to fruition, when the humble Sophie won the gold in the S10 100m freestyle at the London Paralympics. It was a very close race. Yet she did it.
In Beijing Pascoe, a below-the-knee amputee scooped a four-medal haul taking three golds and one silver. In London two silvers and chalking up three golds has been Pascoe’s last round of champion swims’ efforts.
I think Sophie should seriously consider taking up a career in banking for an Australian bank if she’s going to haul in the gold as she has been. She’d be the best Aussie banker, if she chose that lane for a career win. Go kid.
