 It's been a quiet four years for Christin Petelski since she made the Olympic final in the women's 200 breaststroke at the 1996 Atlanta Games. After those Games, she slipped on the pool deck, injured her left knee and underwent surgery to repair ligament damage. Last year she didn't make either the 1999 Pan Am Games or Pan Pacific teams.

  "I wanted to quit in September," she said. "I thought I had enough, I wasn't progressing. But I just made a decision this year to be tough on myself and go for it."
