    Based on the title you would think that she never participated.
    How about she placed 6th in the semis. Or something like that.

    The title of this article does not give justice to the hard work that this athlete has put in to get to the Olympics. Maybe we should show a little more pride in our youth.

    Well done Lani, we are proud of you…your journey was long and tough but you never gave up…..just keep going!
