Actually it was 5th place in the womens 4 x 100 medley at the 2000 Summer Olympics. The team won a silver medal in the same event at the 2002 Commonwealth Games. in 2007 she reclaimed her South African championship in the womens 50m backstroke.

I thought she swam individual events as well as the relay in that games?

Try checking out the Olympic reality:

Olympic Sports
Wikipedia

You, obviously, don't live in the same world as I do. I prefer to live in this world.
If they divorce, she won´t go away with half the Grimaldi´s fortune, so she does not own half of it. They must have made it perfectly clear with a contract before the wedding.
I do not mean she does not have a lot at her disposal and that, much before the wedding.

Thank you so much for the information! How could I forget the team competition I must have been thinking about individual swimming. I think that the fakeness around her made me forget her impressive accomplishments. Now, if your links say she did not qualify for Beijing, and the palace says she did, which one you would say belongs to your world?


In 2007, she ceased competing after qualifying for the Beijing Olympics.

Perhaps when you show us your Olympic medals or your Argentinian national records your opinion on athletic success will have more value.

LOLL,The award that PC got is already nestling comfortably in one of rooms at the private apartments of the couple.She'd already moved on ..like the rest of us.

If you have any complaints about it,direct it to the german committee who deemed her good enough to get an award.Evryone seemed happy at the picture during that event,just saying.

Charlene will speak in 2012 about the foundation Princess Charlene, foundation who make goods for children and mothers.We can not speak only about happyness of persons and do not hope the unhappyness of persons even when we do not like them, for me, it is not my religion and it is Christmas.

Even if Charlene could walk on water or even if she could heal cancer, for some people it will never be enough.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to next year. With the Princess Charlene Foundation coming up there will be a lot to write about in this thread

This should be a great exhibition, as Grace Kelly WAS a true style icon, imo.
