Team GB have claimed their first gold medal of the Olympic Games - and a Boston girl helped them do it!

Adam Peaty, who beat his own world record to claim victory in the 100m breaststroke at Rio, is coached by Melanie Marshall.

Marshall, who grew up in Wrangle, has previously represented her country at the Olympics.

She also claimed six medals at the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne in 2006.
