Towson's Anita Nall is a gold-medal Olympic favorite in today's women's 100-meter breaststroke swimming event. In an occasional diary, Nall will share her thoughts from the Summer Games.
Coming home with the bronze medal in the 200-meter breaststroke is not the end of the world. I am very happy to be here, to be able to compete in the Olympics, and on top of that to receive a bronze medal.
I am a little upset with my performance and time, but I still have many years of swimming ahead of me -- and I swim the 100-meter breaststroke today. I am more than excited to swim the event, and I believe the first-time jitters are all gone.
Today will be an exciting day, just as Monday was.
