So what happened in the 100 back at the European Champs?
I read that Sandra Voelker was disqualified for an
illegal turn (perhaps she kicked too long?).
Has anyone seen a video of the turn? Or heard details
of what happened? It's rare to see a swimmer DQ'ed at such
a high level (can you say "Kristine Quance?"), so I'd
wonder what that may do to her confidence and Olympics
Also, do you think that judges should just "let it slide"
when an elite swimmer does something illegal? That seems
to be an attitude some people... My opinion is that in
that case, what's the use in having stroke/turn/start
judges at all if we're gonna assume a world-class swimmer
"can't" or "won't" do anything illegal!
