Australian swimmer Cate Campbell could need medical treatment before her Olympic trial race on Tuesday because she hurt her wrist while napping.
“I’m an aggressive napper,” she told the Courier Mail. “It was sore in the morning and then I went for a nap during the day and slept on it again.”
If it’s still bothering her before the 100m Olympic trial final on Tuesday, she’ll have a doctor administer a local anesthetic before the race. She used another colorful example to explain the effect.
“It would take the pain away, so that would be good,” Campbell said. “It’s a local in the joint, not on the skin. I wouldn’t be like Harry Potter when he gets his bones removed.”
It would be hard to swim like that.
