What would have unfolded had Tokyo 2020 gone ahead as planned this week – and where would it all have fit in the thread of Olympic swim legends like Leisel Jones, Penny Heyns and Lilly KingTo mark the eight days over which the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games would have unfolded had the coronavirus pandemic not forced postponement, the team at Swimming World is filling the void with a Virtual Vision Form Guide and League of Olympic Swimming Legends.

Day 3, event 4 – Lethal Leisel takes it!

All-Time Battle Of Olympic Swim Legends Goes To Leisel Jones

Longevity in the sport is something that is more routine these days than it was in the past, but medalling in the same event at three consecutive Olympics remains a daunting chore. So, Australia’s Leisel Jones‘ boast of a complete set of Olympic medals, won from 2000-2008, is an accomplishment that sets her apart as a legend of legends.

In her first two Olympic appearances, Jones packed silver (2000) and bronze (2004) medals into her luggage. While the silver as a young teenager at a home Games was a welcome result, her bronze in Athens was a disappointment as Jones entered competition as the reigning world-record holder. Four years later, though, Jones grabbed the gold she long desired, setting an Olympic record in a convincing win. Add three world records to the equation, and it becomes easy to see why Jones ranks No. 1.

The Olympic 100m breaststroke title has never been retained since the event joined the Olympic program in 1968.

Our legends silver medal went to South African Penny Heyns, whose Olympic title in 1996 in Atlanta was complemented by a bronze medal in 2000 in Sydney. When Heyns took gold, she became the first South African to win an Olympic title since her country was allowed to return to the Olympics following its lengthy ban due to apartheid practices. During her career, Heyns set five world records and was the global standard bearer for seven years.

The bronze medal came down to a tight matchup between the United States’ Lilly King and Lithuanian Ruta Meilutyte. King, the Olympic champ of 2016, got the edge over Meilutyte, the 2012 Olympic champ. The current world-record holder, having taken the mark from Meilutyte, King made noise at the 2016 Games out of the water as a vocal opponent of doping. Meilutyte also had a brush with the same rival at which King wagged her finger in Rio, a Russian opponent who likened her 2013 doping ban to a speeding ticket in a car: once the penalty is spent, all clear.

A penalty, however, that bars that swimmer from being considered a candidate for our League of Legends.

Meilutyte, who was vocal in her opposition to her Russian opponent, then fell foul of the WADA Code herself, though not for a banned substance: she had retired from the pool, at least in her own mind, was living overseas, but neither she nor her federation had informed FINA – so when the anti-doping team came calling for a third time without response, Meilutyte copped a ban, which will end in time for her to race at a delayed Olympic Games if comeback is what she had in mind.

If Leisel Jones entered the race as the favourite for the crown, with two World titles to add to Olympic silver in 2000 and bronze in 2004 and then, most significantly, boasting an otherworldly 1:05.09 World record, she did not disappoint.

Jones set the pace from start to finish, her homecoming length a race against the clock, given the gap between her feet and those chasing. The 22-year-old had set an Olympic record of 1;05.64 in heats and then produced the fastest qualifying time in the semis.

In the final, she built a solid edge on the rest by the turn, under World-record pace, and on the way back all but held her thunderous best schedule, falling just 0.08sec shy of her global standard but with the thing she had worked for for a decade: Olympic gold.

American Rebecca Soni, in fifth at the turn, just as Jones had been at Sydney 2000 on the way to silver at a home Games aged 15, swept through the field to take second place. She had not been scheduled to race the 100m at all but was added after Jessica Hardy was forced off the team by a positive test for a banned substance. Hardy served a penalty but her argument that the substance she tested for, clenbuterol, was not listed in the ingredients of a supplement she had taken was accepted at appeal – and her penalty was reduced from two years to a year to reflect that. Karen Crouse told that story well at The New York Times back in 2010.

The bronze in Beijing went to Croatian-born Mirna Jukic, racing for Austria and establishing a first for that country. For the 2004 and 2008 Olympics, Jukić trained at The Race Club, a swimming club founded by Olympic swimmers Gary Hall, Jr. and his father, Gary Hall, Sr.

Leisel Jones Into The Hall of Fame – from the Archive – 2015 2017 – by Craig Lord

‘Lethal’ Leisel Jones is heading for a high plinth in the Pantheon when she enters the International Swimming Hall of Fame (ISHOF) as a member of the 17-strong Class of 2017 at ceremonies to be held August 25-27, in Fort Lauderdale.

Dutch open water ace Maarten Van Der Weijden and French sprinter Alain Bernard are two other Olympic champions in the class of 17. Australia’s Jones is past the point, too, this year in terms of the time required between retirement and eligibility for the Hall of Fame.

When she raced at her last Games, at London 2012, Jones became the first Australian swimmer to compete in four Olympic Games and, alongside Ian Thorpe, holds the record for the most Olympic medals (9) won by any Australian. There were also seven golds at the World Championships and six long-course world records in the mix, three over 100m and three over 200m breaststroke.

Leisel Marie Jones was born on August 30, 1985. As a ten year-old Brisbane school girl, she watched Samantha Riley*win the bronze medal in the 100m breaststroke at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. Less than four years later, she ousted her idol from the Australian Team by winning the 100m breaststroke at the 2000 Australian Olympic trials at the age of 14.

The ISHOF citation includes this: “Soon after her fifteenth birthday, she wowed a home crowd to claim silver medal in the 100m breaststroke and added another silver in the 4 x 100m medley relay at the Sydney Olympic Games.

“For the next eight years, Liesel was the most dominant woman breaststroker in the world. Named world swimmer of the year in 2005 & 2006, the pinnacle of her career came with her individual gold medal in the 100m breaststroke, silver medal in the 200m and a second gold medal in the 4 x 100 medley relay at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

The cover of Liesel’s book “Body Lengths” -Penguin Books

“Nicknamed “Diesel”and “Lethal Leisel,” she candidly recounts in her 2015 autobiography, Body Lengths, that her achievements were not without their challenges. In her book she tells what it was like to be thrust into the limelight so young and under constant pressure from an early age to be perfect — from coaches, from the media and from herself. Despite the highs of her swimming stardom, she suffered depression, and at one time planned to take her own life. In London, she was criticized in the media for her weight, but she handled herself with great composure.

“She has emerged with maturity and good humor, having finally learnt how to be herself and live with confidence. She also hopes that by telling her story, other female athletes will understand they are not alone.”

2015: How Lethal Leisel Showed The Way

Leisel Jones on the cover of Good Weekend Magazine

Jones, honours stretching to three Olympic golds among nine medals, seven world-championship golds among 14 global long-course medals, 10 Commonwealth golds and six world long-course records over 100 and 200m breaststroke (3 each), entered the Sport Australia Hall of Fame in 2015.

Australians got a glimpse of her before the world saw a 15-year-old claim silver a whisker from gold in the 100m at the Sydney 2000 home Olympic Games. The racing ended at London 2012, a fourth Games and the end of a period in Jones’ life that brought both elation and depression.

“This is just a really nice cherry on the top of what has been a pretty terrific ride,’’ Jones told the Herald Sun.

Jones’s nine Olympic medals matched the record tally of Ian Thorpe for the most medals won by an Australian at a Games. Her highlight was the Olympic 100m crown at Beijing in 2008.

leiseljonesbodylengthsIt was far from plain sailing. Reading extracts from her new book “Body Lengths, you might well think the title could have been Body Blows.

It was back in 2006 when Jones first revealed that she had suffered depression as a result of the pressure on her from a young age. She was 20 and at a social function she said:

“I just hated the person I was when I was 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 – being thrust into the limelight and being told to grow up now was incredibly hard.”

Earlier that year, on March 20, she rewrote the pace of women’s breaststroke with a 1:05.09 world record. Talk of axes, shattering, smashing and sledgehammers was the order of the day, while the gap between Jones and those chasing was starting to take on swimming’s equivalent of Biblical proportions.

How all rivals saw Leisel Jones for several seasons at the height of her career – by Patrick B. Kraemer

The time would have won the world title in Kazan, 2015, almost a decade on.

It came off a 30.83sec split, which at the time would have won her the silver behind her own gold in the 50 metres straight at the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne.

Jones, after screaming at the scoreboard, padded over to we the media deckside with a beamer of a smile on her face and said:

“I was going for the world record . . . but I wasn’t feeling my best all week, so it was hard to determine what would happen. I could not believe it. I went into shock. I’m still in shock. I don’t think I’m unbeatable – nobody is.”

The time did not withstand the excesses of shiny suits but in textile survived four years until the 200m Beijing champion, Rebecca Soni (USA) became the first to crack 1:05, with a 1:04.93 at the Pan Pacific Championships in 2010. Since then, Ruta Meilutyte (LTU), 2012 Olympic champion, has moved the pace on to 1:04.35.

Jones was coached by Stephan Widmer, of Swiss origin, for much of her elite career, and also worked with Rohan Taylor – who described her as a “once-in-a-generation type of athlete who’s exceptionally gifted in her event” – on the way to Olympic glory. She perfected the art of reducing the dead zone in breaststroke to a negligible level.

It took time to get there. Emerging from her 1:05.17 victory by more than a body length at Beijing in 2008, she said:  “It’s been a long journey, a long eight years.”

Even before Jones qualified for her first Olympic team, her first elite coach Ken Wood had told her she would be the world’s best breaststroker, but the way to her destiny was harder and more circuitous than she or anyone could have imagined.

Jones pressed the button of timewarp on breaststroke in the 2006-07 seasons, here a fine example of her pace, power and smoothness of skill:

After a stunning Olympic debut in Sydney,  Jones was beset by self-doubt, unable to find self-esteem in medals and records alone.

Leisel Jones became a leading voice in Swimming Queensland's campaign

The experiences she went through would be helpful to others when she became the face of Swimming Queensland’s campaign ‘Growing Up In Lycra‘, issues of body shape and self-image to the fore.

Jones reached her low point when she entered the Athens Olympics four years after Sydney promise and now as the world record-holder and gold medal favourite  – only to be beaten by China’s Luo Xuejuan and fellow Australian Brooke Hanson. In my archive of Jones quotes is this:

“I was probably as low as you can possibly get after Athens. As swimmers, we have once every four years a major competition and when you are told before that you are the best and you can’t be beaten, and then you are beaten, it’s devastating.”

Jones was branded a choker, salt rubbed in wound by Olympic legend Dawn Fraser, who described her as a “spoilt brat” after she showed her disappointment on the medal podium in Athens.

Jones returned home with a stark choice: retire or change approach and attitude. Jones chose swimming to win. She parted company with Wood to work with Widmer in a squad that included Libby Lenton. [Photos: Stephan Widmer and Leisel Jones on Mare Nostrum Tour, 2006 – by Patrick B. Kraemer]. The Swiss coach saw Jones as a girl “who didn’t know who she was”, wrote Nicole Jeffrey in The Australian.

A different swimmer showed up at world titles in Montreal, northern summer 2005. Between her first 100m world title and Olympic glory in 2008, she would win every race she entered – and most by vast margins well ahead of the curve of her opponents. Even so, the 2005 win was seen as “difficult”. Jones would later say:

“In Montreal it was very, very difficult. It was still fresh after Athens, I was still hurt and a little low. I was still searching for myself and finding my self-worth and learning to believe in myself. I learned so much there. In terms of personal experience and personal growth that was more important than this. To overcome the difficulties there, because I was still copping criticism and I was still learning … that was the first time I enjoyed racing.”

On the way to Beijing, she matured mentally, met the man she would become engaged to, former AFL player Marty Pask (the partnership was called off beyond Beijing in November 2008) and switched coaches to Taylor, who guided her to Olympic gold.

In Body Lengths, Jones does not hide her contempt for the culture she was subjected to.

Beyond her Beijing bonanza, Jones swam on to London 2012 but her fastest swimming days were behind her. She arrived in Britain for her last Games as an athlete still capable of a place on the podium – and indeed she returned home with a silver with teammates in the medley relay. Her time in London was asked, however, by a woeful concentration in the Australian media on her weight and body shape.

That last experience in the pool before retirement on November 16, 2012, fed into the concurrent theme in Body Lengths: Jones calls it the “irresponsible and terribly damaging” effect swimming had on her body image and mental health.

There were many joyous moments to savour down the years but “pressure to be perfect” was what she felt – from others and self, her career marked by the ever-present weigh-in from 15 years of age through to Olympic swansong 12 years later.

She was “actively encouraged” to skip meals in an effort to lose weight as a teenager and often felt ridiculed in front of her peers at thrice weekly weigh-in’s where coaches used code words to call the young athletes “fat”. She writes:

“Whenever I have to stand on the pool deck in my togs, listening to my body being discussed like it’s an engine and not the arms, legs, thighs and stomach of a teenage girl, I am self-conscious and miserable.”

At 30 in 2015, Jones said that she would often sob in the showers after the weigh-in, which unfolded with men “as old as our dads” passing judgement and labelling some girls “a 6:1:20”. “This is their code, their secret talk,” she writes.

“They think we don’t understand when they call a girl – it’s always a girl – a ‘6:1:20’. But when she’s crying in the showers later, it’s because she knows that ‘6’ stands for the sixth letter of the alphabet, ‘1’ the first, and ‘20’ the twentieth. F. A. T.”

Jones said she never learnt how to develop a healthy relationship with food as the team was not given “sustained scientific dietary advice”, aside from the recommendation to use meal-replacement shakes to shed a few kilos. She writes of crash-dieting and her own responsibility for the roller-coaster that placed her on:

“It’s a quick way to screw up a teenage girl’s metabolism, to say nothing about the state of her head. It was all my own idea and it nearly killed me – very nearly broke my spirit – but I’m sure it went some way towards keeping the kilos off.”

Body Lengths – A Short Extract

In her diary style book, Jones recalls from a time of training:

“I don’t drink, I don’t eat cheese. I skip ice-cream, hot chips, burgers and pies. The sight of a piece of mud cake can reduce me to tears, worse if it has chocolate icing. I am always on a diet, always counting calories, obsessing over food, and always, always hungry. I am insatiable. I cannot eat enough. I am still a teenager, with a break-neck teenage metabolism, and after swimming and training for hours each day, I can never seem to fill myself up. And yet I still try to diet.”

First world titles in 2005 – by Patrick B. Kraemer

“Last year was ‘My Year Without Chocolate’, in which I didn’t eat a single square of chocolate. Not one piece. It was all my own idea and it nearly killed me – very nearly broke my spirit – but I’m sure it went some way towards keeping the kilos off. I don’t drink, I don’t eat cheese. I skip ice-cream, hot chips, burgers and pies. The sight of a piece of mud cake can reduce me to tears, worse if it has chocolate icing. Christmas is the hardest, because it’s peak training season. Nationals are in March, so I have to be extra strict at Christmas. And all of this has to come from me. I am the one who has to stick to the regime. Beyond the beady eye of my coach, it is up to me. When I’m at home, when I’m out with friends, I have to be good. I need the willpower of a saint. But I am strong and determined.

“Also, I am convinced I am fat.”

“Whenever I have to stand on the pool deck in my togs, listening to my body being discussed like it’s an engine and not the arms, legs, thighs and stomach of a teenage girl, I am self-conscious and miserable. I think I am just too fat.

“Part of the reason for this is that there is nothing strategic about my diet, nor about the diet of anyone who I know. Despite the ad hoc appearance of dieticians in our lives (such as at the Fukuoka World Championships, where they popped up with that salmon cake), we receive no sustained scientific dietary advice. The only dieticians in my life are affiliated with the QAS, and they’re seen as extraneous: outside help you can seek if you really need to shed some kilos or put on some bulk.

Australia’s Leisel Jones at 2005 world titles – by Patrick B. Kraemer

“They are not part of our ‘team’, not in the way our coach or gym trainer is. And seeing a dietician is on par with seeing a sports psychologist: not encouraged. Back when I swam with Ken, he never wanted us to deal with outsiders – coaches knew best – and his strategy when it came to diet was to put most of the girls in our squad on meal-replacement shakes at some time or another.

“Diet shakes, yeah, that’s a good idea for a teenage athlete! We were always getting weighed in, always being judged. We were actively encouraged to skip meals to lose weight. It is irresponsible and terribly damaging. And it’s a quick way to screw up a teenage girl’s metabolism, to say nothing about the state of her head.

leiseljonesbodylengths“Even now at the QAS we are all weighed three times a week. Weigh-ins take place on the pool deck in our togs, and we are weighed in front of our squad (girls and guys together), plus a team of coaching staff. There are men there as old as our dads, all watching our embarrassment as we are publicly weighed.

“Weighed, weighed and weighed again.”

It is then that she recounts the “6:1.20” tale.

    1:09.79 Brigitte Becue BEL

Date of final: July 21, 1996

Penelope Heyns is the only woman ever to win both the Olympic 100m and 200m breaststroke titles.

When she achieved that at Atlanta in 1996, Heyns symbolised the spirit of a new post-apartheid South Africa five years after the nation was readmitted to FINA following years of exclusion imposed by the international community in protest at racist policies.

Born in Springs, Gauteng, South Africa, Heyns moved with her family to a town called Amanzimtoti in Kwazulu Natal when she was a year old. The town name means “the place of sweet waters” in Zulu. Heyns, the youngest member of the first post-apartheid South African Olympic team at Barcelona 1992, enjoyed many a sweet moment in the water between 1995 and 1999.

While a psychology student at the University of Nebraska, she was coached by Jan Bidrman and in 1995 won the 100m and 200m at the World University Games. She set her first world record, of 1:07.46 over 100m in March 1996, her time 0.23sec inside the standard held by 1994 world champion Samantha Riley (AUS).

In Atlanta, Heyns laid down the gauntlet in the preliminaries of the 100m by axing 0.42sec off her own record. In the final, she held off fast-finishing 14-year-old Amanda Beard (USA) by 0.36sec for gold in 1:07.73, with bronze going to Riley.

Over 200m, Heyns set Olympic records in both heat and final, leaving the mark at 2:25.41, and defeated Beard once more, this time by 0.34sec. Beard, who clutched a teddy bear on her way to the blocks in 1996, 11 years before becoming a cover girl for Playboy magazine, went on to win medals at the 2000 and 2004 Games, becoming champion over 200m in Athens.

Heyns, the first South African champion since Joan Harrison in 1952, was criticised for apparently showing no emotion when receiving her medals. She later explained:

“I had seen people crying and waving and being overjoyed at winning a medal but I felt if I were to do that, it would be acting. I didn’t know what to do. Being South African, I didn’t grow up with the Olympic dream. Only when I went back to South Africa did I realise what a big deal it was.”

In the past several years, Heyns has served as an athlete representative on the in-house FINA Athletes’ Committee and has a seat at the top table, the FINA Bureau, one that in the past two years has become all the more challenging as athletes demand independent representation.
