Luke Greenbank has insisted he will not rest on his laurels after taking bronze in the men's 200m backstroke at Tokyo 2020.
Evgeny Rylov of Russia Olympic Committee took gold, but Greenbank’s time of 1:54.72 was good enough to secure a bronze on his Olympic debut.
At 23 years of age, Greenbank has some big years ahead of him and he’s determined to head home and work on marginal gains to put him in the mix for gold medals.
