"It was really emotional. That last sort of 15m I really used the last 12 months of experiences that I’ve gone through and I was really aggressive towards the wall there at the end." Magnussen said.
After missing the Olympic gold medal by 0.01 second last year, James Magnussen triumphs again and is back on top of the world.
Congratulations James! Your time is now.
