She deserves it. If she cannot get into first eight, how can she win a gold ?
Janet Evans finished ninth in the 400 free after the morning session
today. The "controversy" surrounding this is that Michelle Smith of
Ireland entered the meet after the July 5 dealine, oushing Janet from the
last heet to the third to last heat, meaning she wouldn't know what time
she needed to make the finals. She qualified ninth at 4:13.62 (?),
missing eigth by 2 tenths.
