I have nothing to back this up
All she did was honk on about how hard it is to *medal* in swimming, as if a) that Yank stoner hadn't just hauled his 300th gold and b) that somehow made swimming a special case. Stupid honky moaning bint, good riddance.
That It's easier for everyone to win medals in Swimming when one person wins all the medals?
Of a different sex, but Swimming does seem to be dominated by one phenomenon at a time. Well to her for doing that in 2008.

She hit's the mat!
She's not getting up again from that one...
it looked like she was doing doggy paddle during the olympics anyways. A national disgrace.
She's 23. She's just getting proper jobs now.
On here by Tuesday afternoon.
Hi Becky! - ignore the haterz (Royter)
Alongside Duncan Goodhew and Eddie Izzard.
anyway there's a football thread for this sort of thing
Funding cut after the Olympics etc. I don't think I like the way they determine future funding based on recent past performances. Seem illogical.
It's dead weird how you basically have to be 15 to be at the top now. How can a 23 year old be past it? Stupid sport. Anyway, cheers Becky, you were top.

good swimmers develop in their teens and have to sacrifice a lot of the usual things that they would do as they grow up. The state of the sport in this country also means that they have to train at ridiculous hours of the day to get the necessary work done.
cause she has a big nose
