Oops - She did it again!

Took out the Gold - with a 4 second lead.

Womans 200M Individual Medley.

But it's OK - because she doesn't race tomorrow. So I'll have to find a bead to post or write something possibly halfway intelligent & stop showing off. Actually I am quite possibly in shock - lol.
I know this kid is good - I know this kid is a beautiful & determined young woman.... did I tell you that she was offered a room with a en-suit in the accomodation & declined it saying that it should go to someone in a wheelchair?
Was I prepared for this - no way!

Just hitting the News here...

Golden Sophie grabs another
