Pegg has been living the dream and has created a stir in the social media world with Tweets between herself and world wide sensation Justin Bieber. 

At home Pegg's greatest supporter, Mickey Parker, her 93 year old Grandmother was faithfully watching each day and when she was shown some of the news reports on the internet she asked "who's Justin Bieber?" 

Despite Pegg being an Olympian she will have some explaining to do when she gets home.

"I think she did really good." said Parker "I'm really proud of her".
