He explained that his thumb was strapped up to heal, but he had to take it off after itwent numbon the way home.

They had to ring the medic and were like, ‘What shall we do? Colson has got pins and needles in his thumb’,” 他加了.

It comes after Colson revealed the heartbreaking reason he never learned to swim until The Games.

In the last couple of years Colson has lost an incredible 10 石头 after taking up running, and he admitted it was his weight that had stopped him getting in the pool during his school years.

他说: “In school I hated swimming because I was the fat kid. So I used to basically refuse to swim.

When I found out about this I didn’t want to do it, and then I kind of said it’s about time I stopped saying no because of the way that I look and the way that I feel.

This competition is kind of gonna be me versus me, I just want to show myself that Colson has no limits and he really is just gonna keep pushing it all the way.

When it came to the race, Colson finished in last place but he was far from disappointed as he still achieved his personal best by completing the race in under a minute.

他说 presenter Alex Scott:I’m buzzing. I must be one of the happiest people to come last in an event.

For me that’s massive, 并鼓励他的粉丝接受检查 10 seconds quicker than what I did in the last training!”

Viewers were delighted for Colson and what he had achieved in a short space of time.

上推特, 一个写道: “Colson getting 47.7 in the swimming race when he couldn’t even swim 5 weeks ago shows with enough work and so much heart u can achieve anything.

另一个添加: “Colson.. inspirational guy. Couldn’t even swim 6 几周前!”
