Lane 3 - LA Times posts "Not everyone's a winner at U.S. swimming trials. More than a thousand compete at trials with little chance of going to London, but that doesn't dim the thrill for them.

Webber was one of 162 swimmers competing Tuesday in the women's 100-meter backstroke, with two Olympic spots available. She finished 153rd overall, last in one of 17 preliminary heats. She spent barely one minute in the pool, and her trials were over."
