MAGNUSSEN OUT-TOUCHED FOR GOLD
August 2, 2012 at 9:49 am
It was a nail biting finish to one of the most highly anticipated events in Australia’s Olympic campaign.
James Magnussen came away with silver in the 100 metre freestyle final, after American Nathan Adrian out-touched him by one hundredth of a second.
With 10 metres to go, it looked like Magnussen had it won, but the American finished strong, on 47.52 seconds.
Magnussen’s hometown of Port Macquarie was with him all the way – with more than 1000 people braving the cold to to cheer him on.
He’ll now focus on the remainder of his Olympic program – with the 50 metre freestyle heats tonight.
