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.

  1. Coutts on the other hand survived the 200 free prelims and semi, with a 2:00.29 and 1:57.99 (ranked no 5 in the semi), and now only has the 200 final tomorrow left, to see if she drowns in that event.
