Retiring Adlington reveals legacy; SPORT ROUND-UP.
The 23-year-old claimed two bronze medals at the London Olympics to add to her double gold in Beijing in 2008.
She said: "I hate the word retire so I don't want to say retires from it at all because I will never retire from swimming in general.
"As a competitive element, as an elite athlete, I definitely won't be competing any more.
"I will always be swimming, even when I am 90 years old I will still be getting in the pool."
Adlington has set up a learn to swim programme called Becky Adlington's SwimStars "I want to create a deeper legacy which is trying to get every single child swimming 25 metres when they leave primary school," she said.

Mercedes engineers discovered an electrical fault sparked by a faulty wiring loom was the cause, leaving Rosberg a frustrated figure on the sidelines.
After signing a three-year contract with Mercedes, Hamilton will get behind the wheel of the car for the first time today.
