World student games: Odam's Ukrainian lesson
On Monday at the Niagara Falls Convention Center, Rosina Odam came 16th in the women's all-around individual competition in gymnastics with the Ukrainian double gold-medallist at Barcelona, Tatiana Lisenko, winning the gold in a dazzling display.
In each event Odam had the difficult task of following Lisenko. Odam said: 'I was nervous going into the competition and was trying not to think about what Lisenko was doing. I know I wasn't meant to but I did watch her out of admiration.
'Lisenko was just brilliant. She has so much style and she attacks the work because she knows she can do.'
Britain just missed out on their elusive first medal yesterday when the men's doubles tennis partners, Jeffrey Hunter and Jonathan Haycock, lost 6-1, 3-6, 6-4 in a close quarter-final against Mike Sell and Rob Giyone, of the United States.
