James Goddard picks his favourite Olympian of all time
To celebrate the Year to Go celebration for London 2012 on 27th July 2011, we caught up with James Goddard and asked him to reveal his favourite Olympian of all time.
James Goddard is one of most experienced members of the British Gas GBR Swimming Team, having competed at two Olympic Games and five FINA World Championships.
The 28-year old has been a world class performer for a number of years, winning 200m Backstroke gold at the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester and recapturing it at the 2010 Games in Delhi.
Training under Sean Kelly's stewardship at the British Gas ITC Stockport, Goddard narrowly missed out on a medal after finishing fourth at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens and is likely to be a medal contender in both the 200m Individual Medley and 200m Backstroke at London 2012.
