Rebecca Adlington on why she’s a fan of acupuncture for pain reliefPosted March 6, 2016
Although two-time Olympic gold medallist swimmer Rebecca Adlington endured years of pain during her bid for sporting glory, nothing, she reveals, prepared her for what she endured following an accident on Channel Four’s challenging winter sports reality show, The Jump.
“I’ve never suffered pain like that – it was worse than childbirth,” says the 27-year-old, who’s still recovering after she lost control hurtling off an icy 100 metre slope at more than 30mph while practising an air jump.
She dislocated her shoulder so badly she required an operation two weeks ago, and she’s one of six celebrities forced to quit the show because of injury.
