At Beijing, in the 200m and the 400 m medley, she swam faster than the existing world records but came only second, twice behind Stephanie Rice. In the 100m backstroke, she swam a world record in the semi-final, but again won only silver - she kept the world record though. Her fourth world record then finally provided her with a gold medal.
