TRAFFORD'S James Guy won gold for Great Britain at the Tokyo Olympics on Wednesday.

Guy, a former member of Trafford Metro Swimming Club who went to school in Timperley, helped Team GB to victory in the final of the 4x200m freestyle relay.

Swimming the second leg of the final after Tom Dean, it was Guy who put the team into the lead before Matthew Richards and Duncan Scott brought it home.

It was a special moment for the former Forest Preparatory School pupil, who won two silver medals at the Rio Olympics five years ago.

He was in tears after a gold was at last confirmed.

"It’s a dream come true," said Guy.

"Being a young lad I was dreaming of Olympic gold, that’s all I’ve ever wanted in my life is to get that and now I’ve done it.

"It shows if you’ve got a plan, you work hard, when you believe in yourself it can happen."

"All the early mornings, all the years of getting up at 10 past four, we’re here and it’s nice to finally do it."
