a news story says that this is from Uceny's FB page:
"I've never experienced such a heart breaking moment. I put myself in the perfect position coming into the bell lap and felt so relaxed and just ready to roll...I even thought to myself " I AM getting a medal" and the next thing I know I'm skidding on the track, "
