Quote Of The Day
“Panic started to set in. All the street names looked the same to me. I started freaking out. I must have run two or three miles to try and find where I was. I started crying. I tried to talk to people but nobody could speak English … At about 7.30pm I finally returned to the apartment … I walked in sweating and crying and all these American athletes who were watching TV looked up at me and said ‘you’ve been gone for a long time. It must have been a long run?’ I said ‘I was lost and nobody cared about me.’ At the time it was very traumatic. I was this little girl lost in the Netherlands. It was so scary.”
