After some celebrations on the flight home from South Korea, Fitzpatrick said she was looking forward to savouring the moment with friends and family.
She said: “It’s been so busy with all the racing, so I’m looking forward to relaxing and being able to celebrate with everyone because we haven’t really had the chance to do that.”
