Maybe we were at the same event. I saw Zola Budd step on Mary Decker's ankle. She fell right in front of us. Well, thirty rows of people or so in front of us. I had the camera, but I was just stunned to see that happen. It took me a minute or two to think to reach for the shutter.
To be honest I didn't get that intimate of a feeling at the LA Olympics. It was more of an "event". I have a much more positive experience attending Masters swim meets. The Worlds are in Alberta this summer. I either need to get a lot faster or older to compete there. I swim at World record pace - for the 75-79 year old age range.
