Default Bangladesh in Olympic, 2004

Daily star (http://thedailystar.net/2004/08/10/d40810040637.htm)
reported Bangladesh will compete a Swimming event : 100m Breatstrocke both for men (Jewel Ahmed) and women (Dolly Akter).

But I do not find their name in results (BBC sports):
Women's 100m breaststroke and Men's 100m breaststroke.

Any of you guys know about their performance? I guess either they somehow skip the evente or Daily start wrongly reported their event names!

Our best hope Asif did not do well in his event "10m air rifle" . He is SAF games winner of this event and got 35th position (BBC link) in the olympic. An Indian shooter got 12th position.

What I don't understand is how can he be first when that guy Emile's finished 0.4 s earlier than him?

Doli Akhtar didn't do much better either - she was 61st among 73 swimmers.

While I wasn't expecting any one of them to do any better, i'm still saddened by the shamelessness and cluelessness of our athletes and officials. We sent 8 officials with 4 athletes, but didn't send a single coach. Its quite evident that most of these 'officials' aren't even qualified to be an official and it's just a 'promod bhromon' for them. Yesterday I read an article on BangladesherKhela that Doli Akhtar was getting weak because she couldn't eat rice at Athens (because there wasn't any). What the heck was that all about ? Were they seriously expecting the greeks to provide 'bhaat' and 'tangra machcher jhol' for the bd athletes ? As athletes that represent our country in international meets, they should be accustomed to not eating rice everyday, and if they absolutely can't, should be able to provide food for themselves.

What a joke.
