Podium miss devastates swimmer Sjöström

Sarah Sjöström, one of Sweden's major medal hopes going into the Olympics, came in a disappointing fourth in the women's 100-metre butterfly event on Sunday. She also lost her 2009 world record.

"I was surprised that it went so slowly because it felt good ahead of the race. But I collapsed at the end," Sjöström told Swedish Radio Sport.
