After capturing a silver and bronze medal at the Olympics North Kingstown native Elizabeth Beisel is ready to return to little Rhody.
I get home in two days and I cannot wait. Then Im going to head back to school continue swimming in Florida and finish my college career, Beisel told the WPRO Morning News with Tara Granahan and Andrew Gobeil. Beisel, 19, is going into her junior year at the University of Florida where she swims for the Florida Gators.
Despite her eagerness to return home, Beisel still says the London Olympics has been the experience of a lifetime. I have lost my voice I have been cheering so much for the team. It is just been such an amazing week. I am sad that it is over but it is something I am going to remember forever.
Beisel noted that one of the highpoints of the experience has been the support she has seen pouring in from home. One of the highlights is the amount of support I have got, especially from Rhode Island. The amount of messages I have gotten, I have read every single one. It really makes me so happy that people from Rhode Island are actually following the sport of swimming.
After all the media attention Beisel has received over the past few weeks many speculate that she may be headed for a career in broadcasting. As a journalism major Beisel says those speculations are not far from her ambitions.Dee DeQuattro | WPRO News
