Simon Burnett 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 Simon Burnett and asked him to reveal his favourite Olympian of all time.
Simon Burnett made his international debut at the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester, winning a 4x200m Freestyle relay bronze medal, before making his Olympic debut two years later and reaching the 200m Freestyle final at Athens 2004.
The 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne proved to be one of the most succesful meets of his career so far as Burnett picked up 100m Freestyle gold, 4x200m Freestyle Relay gold and 200m Freestyle silver.
After a quiet few years in terms of medals, Burnett stormed to 100m Freestyle silver at last year's Commonwealth Games and booked his place at the 2011 World Championships courtesy of winning the 50m and 100m Freestyle double at the British Gas ASA National Championships.
