Sally Conway: 'I needed to be at my best'

British judoka Sally Conway admits that she needed to be at her best to achieve the bronze medal in the -70kg category at the Olympic Games.

Great Britain's Sally Conway has admitted that she has achieved her dream by winning a medal at the Olympic Games.

Conway defeated world champion Gevrise Emane on the way to the semi-finals in the -70kg category and although she lost her last-four contest, she recovered to win the bronze-medal match against Austria's Bernadette Graf.

The 29-year-old told BBC Sport: "It hasn't sunk in. I knew if I was going to come away with a medal I would have to put in my best performances.

"I'm not from Brazil but the crowd have been awesome. I just want to thank everyone. This has been my dream since London. I can't put it into words."

Conway's result on Wednesday adds to the bronze medal that she won at the Commonwealth Games in 2014.
