No Olympics for Foschi

INDIANAPOLIS () -- Jessica Foschi believed she had only a slim chance of catching Brooke Bennett and Janet Evans in the 800-meter freestyle at the U.S. Olympic Trials.


Actually, she had none. Foschi never threatened Bennett, Evans or Trina Jackson -- the top three finishers -- as her bid to make the Olympic swimming team ended in defeat Monday night.


The 15-year-old, swimming on probation after a failed drug test, finished fourth with a time of 8 minutes, 41.61 seconds. Only Bennett and Evans earned trips to the Atlanta Olympics.


"I wasn't that concerned about not making the team," Foschi told a U.S. Swimming spokesman. "I just wanted to swim fastest time. I was not satisfied with my time."
