Extractions: Triple Olympic champion Inge de Bruijn is paying the price for her Diva-like behaviour since her starring role in Sydney four years ago, her coach Paul Bergen said on Saturday. Bergen was so fed up with the erratic behaviour of the glamorous Dutch swimmer that he kicked her off his training programme in the United States last year. The differences between de Bruijn, who turns 31 last this month, and Bergen reached a head because she wasn't turning up for training. It was a familiar story for the Dutchwoman, who missed the 1996 Atlanta Games after being sidelined by the national team because she was unmotivated. "It's hard to handle when your best swimmer isn't coming to training sessions, so I asked her to leave," said Bergen.

Extractions: Holland's Inge de Bruijn added the women's 50m freestyle gold to her Sydney Olympic haul on Saturday, while America's Jenny Thompson picked up her eighth Olympic gold in women's 4x100m medley relay. With successes in the 100m butterfly and 100m freestyle already behind her, de Bruijn powered home over the shorter distance to beat Sweden's Therese Alshammar in to second while Dara Torres of the United States took the bronze. Her winning time of 24.32 secs was outside the world record mark she set in the semi-finals. Great Britain's Alison Sheppard finished seventh in 25.45 secs after making an excellent start. "I'm a little bit disappointed by my place and time, but even my best time would not have got a medal today," said Sheppard. "The experience of the whole thing has been amazing though and I tried to enjoy it today. I was going well for the first 25 metres but at the end I guess I just wasn't fast enough. "I've made an Olympic final and I've got to be happy with that. There was a lot more pressure in the final than the semi-final."

Extractions: De Bruijn slashes 50m record From Craig Lord in Sydney Inge de Bruijns reaction time said it all: 0.41sec off the blocks as measured by the electrode attached to the platform from which she pounced Puma-like on her way to a stunning world record of 24.13sec in the second semi-final of the 50m freestyle. In setting the thirteenth world record in the pool in Sydney - more than three times the number established in Atlanta four years ago - the flying Dutchwoman reduced the gap that has existed between men and women over the distance for the past 15 years by half a second. The average reaction time in the semi-finals was 0.78sec. De Bruijn left the blocks as though her feet had been placed over hot coals. Emerging from her dive ahead of reigning Olympic champion Amy Van Dyken, of the United States, the most talked-about woman in the pool in Sydney evoked memories of Chinas Le Jingyi, the former world record-holder, in 1994. Then, Le had windmilled her way to a global standard of 24.51sec, in a victory of power over technique to take the world title. So it was with de Bruijn, whose straight-arm action is not the prettiest sight in the pool, though under water she is sharply efficient. De Bruijn said she was looking forward to the final. Her rivals were not. Nearest to her today was Therese Alshammar, of Sweden, on 24.80sec. The biggest winning margin in any world-level championship over 50m was secured by Le in 1994, when she finished 0.59sec ahead of Natalia Mesheryakova, the Russian who was later suspended for testing positive for an anabolic steroid.

DAY 1 SWIMMING Men's 400m freestyle - Ian Thorpe Thorpe appeared emotional in the pool as he retained the 400 metres title. Reinstated to the team after falling from the blocks in the trials, Thorpe was cheered on by the man who stepped aside for him, Craig Stevens. Grant Hackett pushed his teammate all the way, but there was no denying Thorpe the gold medal. "The people I swam it for was the person who gave me the opportunity in this race, Craig Stevens, and I was thinking about him, about my coach Tracey Menzies, my family, all of the people that this means something to, and all of the people who have been prepared to support me in the lead-up to this through the tough times." - Ian Thorpe SWIMMING Women's 4x100m freestyle relay - Alice Mills, Lisbeth Lenton, Petria Thomas, Jodie Henry

Photo: Iain Gillespie It's a been a strange sort of a week for Libby Lenton, but at least if finished on a high. Swimming at her first Olympics, the 19-year-old began the competition in the perfect way, winning a gold medal as a member of the 4 x 100m freestyle relay team. That was the high on the opening night of the Games. The low was soon to follow. Lenton went into the 100m freestyle as the world record holder and favourite to win the gold. She swam in the heats and made it to the next stage, the semi-finals. That was when the trouble struck. Lenton not only failed to qualify for the final, finishing in ninth position after the two semis, but as she was talking the gathered media about her disappointment, Jodie Henry was in the water breaking her world record.
