Faith Pitman "absolutely ecstatic" with bronze

England judo medal winner Faith Pitman admits that she is "absolutely ecstatic" to have won bronze in what she expects to be her final competition.

England's Faith Pitman has said that she is "absolutely ecstatic" to have won bronze in the -63kg judo event at the Commonwealth Games.

The 29-year-old beat Australian Katharina Haecker to clinch third place in the competition yesterday.

She told Herts & Essex News: "I'm absolutely ecstatic and really pleased. It was a really tough fight, I knew it would be going into it. I think this will be the last time I fight. It's definitely going out on a high.

"My boyfriend has come up to watch. This is the highlight of my career. I've been training really hard it's been my main focus for a while now.

"It's been absolutely awesome. I went to the Opening Ceremony and people said I got on TV so it was fantastic. I absolutely loved every minute of it. I'm going to enjoy the rest of it now. I'll be supporting everyone else and hopefully we can get a few more medals."

Scotland's Sarah Clark won the gold in the category, beating Helene Wezeu Dombeu of Cameroon in the final.
