REALLY bad timing

Pretty, and very fast, Danish sprint specialist Jeannette Ottesen (who I have written about before) got hurt in a road rage altercation in Denmark. Her boyfriend got the worst of it.

While her injuries weren't traumatic, for a swimmer they're significant:  she broke a finger.

The bad timing aspect of this is that the World Championships in Kazan, Russia start at the end of July, but the events that Ottesen would compete in don't start until August 2.   There is an event the first day, the 100 meter butterfly, she might compete in, but I'm not sure.  So she has time to get better and to stay on track for the championships.  But not a lot of it.
