Post Race Comments

Josie Tomic (AUS) was almost ten seconds slower than her opponent in the qualifying round and could not go any faster in the final. "I was trying to do a personal best but that didn't happen," said 20 year old Tomic who was the Junior World Champion in the two kilometre distance in 2007. "It's only my second year at elite level and Wendy was just too good for me."
