Nearly but not quite a bronze

August 13, 2008

Oh dear, Moss Burmester was second at the last turn but touched the end in fourth place in the 200m butterfly at the Olympics today.

But Mary Wilson  won gold in silly questions for asking, “What went wrong?”

When you do a personal best and break your own Commonwealth record in doing so, it’s not a matter of what went wrong. It’s just that sometimes in sport as in life your best isn’t good enough because other people are better.

And TVNZ, as Keeping Stock, points out didn’t even dive off the starting block because a switching failure meant most of the country couldn’t watch the race.
