Katie Hoff Heartbreaker in the Women’s 400 Meter Freestyle Final, Misses Gold

At the first turn, it was Laure Manadou of France.  But this is a very long race.  On the 3rd turn, Manadou continued to lead.  No one has defended this event in the Olympics in 80 years!

Katie Hoff took the lead on the 4th turn!!  She was spreading her lead and in the 5th turn was still in the lead and looked to be pulling away.

She turns again in the lead and had the US fans on their feet and screaming.  She has a full body length going into the final turn.  She is so far out ahead, but there is so much that can happen, and Katie couldn’t hold her lead and missed Gold by 7/100 second. Katie gets the Silver.

Sorry Katie, but we all loved your performance.

“Peirsing” the Compitition, Peirsol Takes 1st Place

USA Aaron Peirsol was behind Liam Tancock of Great Britain at the turn in Heat 6 of the Men’s 100 Meter Backstroke.

Seemingly with ease, following the turn, Peirsol overtook Tancock and touched first to win the heat.

The US is looking very strong in the 100M Backstroke and a Gold in the event is a strong possibility.  Peirsol is the defending Gold Medalist from 2004.

Peirsol holds six individual World titles and nine world records and was the first man in history to break 53 seconds in the 100 Meter Backstroke.
