Saturday’s smiles

In the heat for the 200m Olympic women’s breaststroke, eight women entered the race. Two were from Australia, and one each from New Zealand, USA, Canada, Germany, England and Sweden.

Emily, one of the Australians, won the race in two minutes and 10 seconds. A split second later, Maggie from New Zealand was declared the second place finisher and Alice, the Canadian, was fractionally behind her.

The other three finished in their wake but it took nearly 40 minutes for the English woman to complete the race.

When the reporters asked why it took her so long to get to the finishing line, she replied, ‘I don’t want to sound like I’m a sore loser, but I think those other women were using their arms.’
