Whooping cough strikes Olympians

AUSTRALIA'S Olympic swimming preparations have copped a disruption from left field, with whooping cough striking down water polo players Melissa Rippon and Nicola Zagame.

The illness outbreak has forced the cancellation of a grand prix swimming event scheduled for Canberra this weekend.

The list of nominations had included James Magnussen and Liesel Jones, but Swimming Australia said it did not want to risk further infection.
