Former British swimmer Rebecca Adlington's two Olympic gold medals and two bronze have been recovered after a burglary at her home in Manchester.

The world's best chased gold in London. Look back at all the action.

Adlington wrote on Twitter beforehand that she was "in absolute pieces." But she tweeted 30 minutes later that her "medals have been found. I'm so relieved."

The burglary happened late Monday when Adlington and her fiance were in London. Her fiance's car and laptop were stolen in the robbery.

Adlington won freestyle gold in the 400 and 800 meters at the 2008 Beijing Games, and took bronze in the same races last year in London.
