After the finish of the race Kori tapped her head.  Well, she did run a very clever
race, from the outside lane so she is entitled to suggest she used her brain. She is pictured below
during the 1st round of the hurdles, when she won heat 4 in 54.99seconds. in her semi-final
she finished behind Zuzana Hejnová (54.59 to 54.92).
