    Nah, serial choker who's got the ability but not the mentality. Hopefully she's befouled her last pavement.

    Why does athletics have qualifying and finals on the same night yet swimming has everything on different days?

    Swimming is more physically draining than some athletics?

    Swimming 100m is a lot harder on your body than running 100m imo.

    It's a miracle she actually managed to be able to be fit enough to manage to start the race, and even better that she managed to finish it. She had a broken femur at some point in the last 6 months, not sure when, but that would put most people out for a year.

    Yeah, recovery time is shorter from the sprints. Plenty of space between the qualifying for any distance above 400 metrs. Also the method of qualifying - in athletics you go through with top three in the heats (as they seed the heats), in swimming you're encouraged to swim the fastest time possible as only time qualifies you for the next stage. This drains you.

    Rowing seems to be the most physically demanding TBH.

    TBF, you can put it down to injury in some ways this time out, and she was only 19 in 96 when she finished 4th.
