Seebohm collapsed after the 100 backstroke


Suffering from a recent bout of swine flu, Emily Seebohm collapsed today at the end of the Australian Championships women’s 100 backstroke final, managing silver in 1:00.08 inside the Shanghai cut, but then given oxygen and placed in a wheelchair. Coach Matt Brown told reporters that she had “knocked herself into the ground” and would now withdraw from the rest of the meet. Belinda Hocking won in 59.55. Source, results here.
