Dennis Rijnbeek finishes relay hopes for the Netherlands

As the second swimmer dove in, all Netherlands loving fans got
scared.............
And their nightmare came trough as Dennis Rijnbeek was disqualified for
false start.
Swimming the 3th time overall, without VDH (which would have given them
another 2,5/3 seconds......) they probably miss out on an almost certain
medal.........
And they could have gone a full 2 seconds slower to make the
final............

There are times when i hate swimmming........... :(

That's too bad for the team. Think of how bad that poor kid feels!

One of my Olympic predictions was that a prominent (i.e., medal
contender) relay team would get DQ'ed by a false start. I'm
sorry to see it actually happen...
