I can only imagine that being at the Games would be an intense time for everyone involved – it all seems to happen SO quickly.
So when Chinese swimmer Fu Yuanhui came out of the pool in the women’s 100 metre backstroke final, she was half way through her defeat speech with a reporter when she realised mid-way through that she had INDEED won a bronze medal!
The swimmer has become a hit on social media following the hilarious interview, where she looks genuinely surprised once told of her result!
She starts telling the reporter: ‘Even though I did not win a medal..’
The reporter then steps in telling her that she has actually come third.
She replies: ‘What??! Third?’
After the reporter confirming the result she says: ‘I did not know. In that case it’s not bad at all.’
