Australia’s Campbell swam with hernia: report


SYDNEY: Australia’s 100m freestyle world record holder and gold medal hope Cate Campbell went into the Olympics with a painful hernia, a report said Tuesday. Campbell told The Australian that the hernia, her second in 12 months, did not impact on her performances in Rio where she failed to win a medal in the 100m despite being the favorite. The Australian said Campbell’s hernia was detected three months ago, before she broke the world 100m freestyle record during a swim in Brisbane in the lead-up to the games.
