Tokyo Olympics: How Tom Dean battled back from COVID to win gold at the Games
SKY NEWS says seven months ago, Tom Dean contracted COVID-19 for a second time and couldn’t walk up the stairs “without coughing and wheezing.” Now, he has powered to victory in the men’s 200 metres freestyle at the Olympics.
Dean finished in a time of 1:44:22, setting a new record for Britain, ahead of fellow Brit Duncan Scott.
The 21-year-old had his doubts about even making it to the Tokyo Olympics after he contracted coronavirus for a second time at the start of the year, which forced him to spend up to seven weeks out.
