Oh dear, some of our Aussie swimmers have been disappointed with their swimming performances.
Not won the gold medals they thought they would...
There's been a lot of debate about nerves and hype and letting people down and tears when they are interviewed immediately after the race.
......and what do they blame???
"Stayed up too late on Twitter and Facebook !!! "
For heavens sake!
OK, so some of them didn't achieve what they thought they would.
I wish the media would leave them alone immediately after a race to regroup. Give them a little time to swallow their disappointment. Let their coaches do their jobs to get them back on track before they face the media
And Pleeeease !!!
Athletes, throw the phones away till you've finished your events and concentrate on what you're there for ..............
and if you give it your best and don't get the result you were hoping for we'll still cheer for you and support you no matter what !
