SARAH Stevenson says competing at the Olympics in London was an honour despite losing in the first round of the taekwondo competition, writes Richard Fidler.
A knee injury earlier this year meant that Stevenson, from Doncaster, missed a large part of her preparations.
However, after her 5-1 defeat against America’s Paige McPherson she said there was no regrets. “It was a massive, massive honour. I got to read the oath at the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games and I got to compete in the Olympics,” she said. “I wanted to come and do my best and have no regrets and I think I did well and I’m happy with how I performed.
“I didn’t know how good I would be, neither did anybody else, so the thing was to just come here and do my best.”
