THOMPSON Jenny (1973) United States / Swimming
American Jenny Thomson is amongst those who have won the most medals in international swimming. However, coming to the end of her career, she would no doubt willingly exchange all the gold medals that she won in the team events for a simple little individual gold medal.Such was her objective in Sydney and such it was that she failed once again.Gold medallist in the 4x100 m freestyle relay, in the 4x200 m freestyle relay and in the 4x100 m medley relay, she only picked up a bronze for the 100 m freestyle, in spite of the fact that she greatly dominated the world championships several months previously.Hers is a strange and paradoxical story: five times gold medallist with the American team in the Atlanta and Barcelona games, before the Sydney games she had only won a silver medal in the Barcelona games in the 100 m freestyle, despite being the world record holder at the time.
