One of the greatest Olympic careers in Canadian history ended sprawled on the streets of London Tuesday.
The two-time Olympic medallist was forced to withdraw from the Olympic race.
"Then Windsor Castle," he wrote via email. "Then Princess Diana water fountain. Then M&M Land. Family time."
Family is just the emotional salve Whitfield needs now.
"I had one of the best swims I had in a while," said Whitfield.
"We train four years for this and, unfortunately, it happens. I've had two incredible Olympics."
