Australian Swimmer Tries To Cover Up Skateboarding Injury With False Hit-And-Run Claim, Fails

"Olympic swimmer Kenrick Monk has tearfully admitted to inventing a story about being the victim of a deliberate hit-and-run car incident. In a blow to his chances of representing his country again, Monk, 23, revealed he had broken two bones in his elbow while skateboarding on Wednesday. At the time he told media he had been riding his bicycle when a P-plate car had hit him and driven off. But today, at the pool where he trains in Brisbane, he told a media conference he had made up the story out of embarrassment." [The Australian] (H/T Tomuban)
